Gesture from Tarmac to budding Snodland footballers

June 2, 2021

Community sports group Snodland Town Football Club has secured support from Tarmac to kick off the development of its clubhouse and grounds.

Thanks to the donation, work is underway to build a clubhouse and develop the club’s amateur sporting facilities for the benefit of the local community and some 300 members aged five upwards. Tarmac support includes providing materials, including aggregates and asphalt, towards the project – as well as labour and laying expertise.

Through the Snodland Partnership, Tarmac, Snodland Town Council and Smurfit Kappa have also provided an additional £10,000 grant. Snodland Partnership members also include Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council, Berkeley Homes and Co-op.

The financial donation is being used to aid the transformation project and contribute to the club’s ongoing maintenance costs.

Alan Totham, marketing director of Snodland Town FC, said: “Everyone at the club is very grateful for Tarmac’s help. This work is giving us a fantastic hard standing area outside the clubhouse entrances, including creating a large seating area. Our new roadway will also allow spectators to enter the ground in dry conditions and enable vehicle access if required.”

Iain Blackaller, area operations manager for Tarmac, said: “Local sporting clubs and facilities like Snodland Town FC continue to be of huge benefit to members of the community and amateur sportspeople of all ages. We’re proud to be able to provide both funding and practical support as the club resumes its full schedule of activities for local people.”

With work now underway, the project is due for completion in the summer.
