Molescroft Parish Council Awarded Cash To Extend Pétanque Piste

Molescroft Parish Council has been awarded £20,600 money which they say will be used to help fund plans to extend the Pétanque Piste at Molescroft Pavilion.

Funding from East Riding of Yorkshire Council came as a result of Commuted Sums from local housing developments. 

The total scheme cost is £22,796.40, with £20,600.00 from Commuted Sums and £2,196.40 from Molescroft Parish Council. 

The funding will enable the parish council to extend the current Pétanque pistes and build a new piste next to the existing site to increase the capacity at Molescroft Pétanque Club.

Pétanque is a sport that is certainly more social than physical and there are 1000s of players registered in the UK. The current Pétanque Piste at the Pavillion opened back in 2019.

Mac Fleming, Vice-Chair of Molescroft Parish Council, said:

“We are very pleased with the grant from East Riding of Yorkshire Council to expand this facility, which has exceeded expectations and become a very popular community facility.”

Suham Sidani, Club Secretary at Molescroft Pétanque Club, said:

“We are delighted to receive this grant to expand the facility, which will expand the club and increase our contribution to the community.”

“With this expansion, the facility will be large enough to host national events and will allow us to expand the club to offer junior training sessions and more community sessions. We have also had schools express an interest in using the facility and learning the game.”

Councillor David Tucker, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s portfolio holder for planning, infrastructure, and housing, added ;

“The award of these Commuted Sums provided by local housing developments as a condition of their planning approval is great news for Molescroft and the Pétanque Club.”

“I wish them all the best for the future, and am very pleased that we have been able to facilitate this funding.”
