Sports Development Group (Sports Council)

The Sports Development Group were set up by the Town Council for all sports clubs to come together and share good ideas, best practice and how sports can be developed across the town. East Grinstead is fortunate in that it has a plethora of top quality varied sporting clubs. All clubs and groups are invited to attend the meeting (and if you are new or have not come across the group before,  just come along and make yourself known, you are welcome to attend).

The group meet quarterly to receive an update on what is going on in groups, opportunities for grants, advice and how to access this.  The meeting is currently chaired by a Town Councillor however this is a meeting facilitated by the Town Council and is there for the clubs and groups to get something out of this and voice any concerns or needs.  The Town and District Council both send officers who can help signpost to bodies who may be able to help resolve a problem.  Sometimes the groups can help each other out.   This is networking, advice, help and camaraderie,  but so much more.
