New children's football pitch in Sundridge

A Kent football club is to set up children's teams after a grant was awarded for new smaller pitches.

Chipstead FC said it would be setting up under-7s and under-9s teams which will use the new pitch at Sundridge Recreation Ground.

Although there are two full-sized pitches on the site, players under the age of 10 have been unable to play as they must use smaller pitches.

Sevenoaks District Council said extra security would be brought in.

The council awarded a grant of £2,750 from its Big Community Fund to Sundridge Parish Council for the work which is expected to cost £5,750.

Part of the money will be used to clear and level a derelict play area in the park.
