Football Foundation awards £28.3m in grants to grassroots sports facilities Tagged with: football Funding 128 grassroots sports facilities around the country are set to benefit from grants totalling £28.3m from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund.The Football Foundation delivered the grants between January and June 2016 on behalf of the funding partners: the Premier League, The FA and the Government/Sport England.Grants awarded from the Fund by the Foundation primarily go towards the development of new or refurbished floodlit third generation artificial grass pitches (AGPs), changing room pavilions and natural grass pitches in the areas of the country that need them most.The Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund also provides smaller grants for smaller scale improvements, such as replacing unsafe goalposts and purchasing pitch maintenance equipment.Grant beneficiaries include:Edmonton Cricket Club LPS, which received £10,000 for replacement goals/ground maintenance equipment, Cedars Upper School, which received £1,075 for the replacement of unsafe goalposts, and Binfield FC, which received £240,157 for a new changing pavilion and the refurbishment of its existing clubhouse.By using this grant money to leverage a further £25.1m of partnership funding, the Foundation has maximised this investment further, meaning that the total amount invested into community sport is £53.4m.Last season, grassroots football facilities that the Foundation invested in saw a 7% increase in football participation and an 8% increase in multi-sport participation, such as rugby, cricket, and netball.Richard Scudamore, executive chairman of the Premier League, said:“Premier League clubs are committed to supporting all levels of English football and investing in community sports facilities is a key part of that. The facilities are essential to the work Premier League clubs are doing to encourage young people to play sport and will be used by primary schools for PE lessons, local amateur clubs for entire league programmes, and by professional clubs to deliver projects including Premier League Kicks and the Premier League Girls Football Programme.”  149 total views,  1 views today  150 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Melanie May | 2 September 2016 | News Advertisementlast_img read more

New bakery franchise opens in London

first_imgA new business to the UK specialising in cream puffs has opened in central London and harbours ambitions to open 10 stores within three years.Chewy Junior, a 600sq ft outlet in Charing Cross, specialises in 18 variants of cream puff that sell for £1.90 for deluxe and £1.60 for the mini size. They are similar to choux, but crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Azril Azhar, UK master franchiser, opened in Villiers Street three months ago, after he bought the master franchise rights from the Singapore owner, which has nearly 25 outlets in Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea and Qatar.Azhar said he hoped to have three or four London branches in the first year, although he has already had enquiries from further afield. “I am focusing on London, because that is where tourists are. We are still new and still teaching people what a cream puff is.” Azhar said he hoped to look outside London in his second year, with Liverpool and Manchester top of his list. “After year two, I would like to have about 10 stores.”He is looking at introducing a premium range, with hazelnut cream and more expensive ingredients, as well as a savoury range, and is also looking at working with wedding planners.last_img read more

The Hunt for the Ultimate Curation Tool: Cliqset is Getting Closer

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Tags:#Product Reviews#web If a thousand social networks bloom, with cross-network communication and real-time replies, how will you manage to find and share the best things that your friends put into your stream? Innovative social network aggregator Cliqset launched a new version this morning that offers a very interesting answer to that question. Cliqset is a service that lets you publish and subscribe to 80 different social networks, from Twitter to YouTube to Delicious to Foursquare.Long a proof of concept more than an app you’d use, Cliqset can be so forward-looking it hurts. Today’s relaunch brings it closer than ever to making it my #1 choice for ways to interact with the river of news – in theory. The next few weeks should be even more exciting for Cliqset, with the introduction of an iPad version, Chrome desktop pop-ups and Facebook search integration. The service remains rough around the edges, but I sure love what the company is doing.Cliqset used to be a lonely place, displaying only content from other people you knew who had signed up for Cliqset (not many). Now you can read anyone’s Tweets through the service, and the interface for sorting, replying and watching conversations may be the most sophisticated we’ve seen yet.For example, if a well-known person throws out a Tweet (or if you do) and it gets a number of replies, you can view that Tweet alone on a page in Cliqset, with replies to it streaming in below it, pushed to your browser in real time.Previously, on CliqsetTop 10 Real-Time Technologies of 2009The Day The Highway Went Coast-to-Coast: 70+ SocNet Feeds Normalized by New APICliqset Could Be The Web’s First Read-Write Identity ProviderThe service’s integration of the Google-led Salmon messaging protocol lets Cliqset users message across social networks, something Cliqset hopes will be adopted by many social networks and breathe new life into the long tail. If you can message people on Status.net from inside Twitter, there’s all the more reason to take a long look at Status.net’s interface, for example.Curation is beautifully implemented in Cliqset, it’s easy to push any item into a curated stream that other people can subscribe to in real-time. That’s really nice, and just cries out for iPad integration.Right now the little company appears to be struggling under some launch-day traffic and its ambitious may never be realized if scalability remains a killer. There are also a number of little design considerations, though the site is very pretty, that seem unintuitive to this human user. Cliqset is warming up though, it feels less like the brilliant super-dork at a party that you can’t have a conversation with every day.The Future of CliqsetCross network, real-time streaming and curation? Sounds like something I want on my iPad. Sure enough, Cliqset says that’s not a big stretch at all. An iPad style-sheet will be in place in a matter of weeks.Likewise, the reason I stay with Tweetdeck for my work-Tweeting is because of the pop-up notifications for high-priority columns. Cliqset says the new Chrome HTML5 desktop notifications API is something it is working on and expects to implement soon.Finally, how about some Facebook search? I don’t understand why so few services have implemented search across not just Twitter but public Facebook messages as well. Neither does Cliqset, and the company says that’s right around the corner as well.Speaking of Tweetdeck, Cliqset says it is doing API work of its own that should enable Tweetdeck to serve up streams from 80 different social networks very soon. That sounds very cool, and like something that deserves its own coverage.Cliqset is the most sophisticated, forward looking tool for stream reading on the internet today. It’s also awkward, unstable, confusing and full of more potential than actualized usefulness. But that balance changes a little more with every iteration. You should check out Cliqset – sooner or later it could win you over. marshall kirkpatrickcenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more
