Sport England – Small Grant application

Home » Sport England – Small Grant application

On the back of our success with a Sport England grant for the new building – the club is going for a Sport England “Small Grant” – around £10,000. This will be for flarms and new radios for the whole club fleet. As before, we have to demonstrate the need and give evidence to support.

In essence we are saying the flarms and radios will be used in x-country coaching – with instructors being in reliable contact with x-c pilots going for e.g. silver badges – and safer flying while doing it because of flarm proximity warnings. You get the picture.

If you could pen a few well chosen words saying why you think such a project is needed – and email me at

This will provide the “evidence the project needs to happen” in Sport England speak.

I will then cut and past all responses into a single document which goes with the application.

Thanks in anticipation………..Dave Wedlock
