Lochside arena funding

This Go Fund Me page was created in order to raise money to renew the surface at Lochside Arena Scottish Charity Number SC040150.   

Lochside arena was founded in 2008 and built in 2012 as a multi-use community building. In 2015 a new surface was placed in the arena, which made it equestrian use only. 

The new Lochside board of directors would like to remove this surface and replace it with something that will enable the building to become multi use again. Sand has been the chosen option. 

There are multiple costs involved in the renewal of the surface including: 

Removal and disposal of the fabric layer (labour, transport + landfill tax. CnES are waiving other charges) 
· Preparation of the base layer (Plant hire and labour costs) 
· Materials and delivery – approx. 280 tonnes of sand. 
· Laying of the surface (Plant hire and labour costs) 
· Refurbishment of maintenance equipment (towed grader and sprinkler system) 

This has been worked out at approximately £12,000 to do, this includes very generous discounts. 

Any donations received are gratefully received, we will keep you all updated on the progress. 

Many thanks for taking the time to read our story and thank you for any donations.
