The club has also benefited from £1,250 from the Henry Colbron trust, which provides funds for educational projects in Ashwell.

Grass track racing is now set to get underway at Ashwell recreation ground on Thursday June 5, and will run every Thursday throughout the summer. The club aims to get as many 9-16 year olds involved as possible.

Mr Godschalk added: "We've had a trial run which went very well. Although we wanted it to start this month the recreation ground is very busy and is still being used for football."
