Bellway South London, which is currently building new homes at two sites in the village with a third site acquired, has provided the funding for Billingshurst Sports and Recreation Association.

The association, which is an umbrella for several sporting groups in the village, is spending the money on new furniture and lighting at its Jubilee Fields clubhouse off Petworth Road.

David Newell, chairman of Billingshurst Sports and Recreation Association, said: “We are delighted to accept this donation towards our facilities.

“The clubhouse is an attractive venue for community functions, which provides a key source of revenue for the sports club.

“With the population of Billingshurst increasing rapidly, we have struggled to keep up with our growing membership.

“It is reassuring to see the support we have from key stakeholders and businesses within the local community.”

Daniel Williamson, sales director of Bellway South London, said: “As a major housebuilder in Billingshurst, we are committed to supporting the local community of both new and existing residents here.

“Billingshurst Sports and Recreation Association plays an important role within the village and we are pleased that our financial help will be used to make a difference to all the sports teams and other users of its facilities every week.”

Bellway is providing new homes at Amblehurst Green and The Courtyard, located off East Street, and is also planning a third development off Marringdean Road.
