SPORTS facilities in Attleborough could receive a boost if residents get behind plans to create a 400m running track.

Clubs in the town have approached Attleborough Town Council asking them to provide a grass track on its land at Gaymer's Meadow.

Following the request, the council has organised a public meeting at the site, off Maurice Gaymer Road, to hear people's opinions on the idea. The meeting will take place on June 14, at 7pm.

Jeremy Burton, chairman of the Attleborough Amateur Boxing Club who instigated the plan, said the track would not only be used by sports clubs for training, but would be available to everyone for free.

'Attleborough has been lacking in sports provision for some time and this is a simple thing which could make a big difference,' he said.

Anyone who would like to make a comment on the proposed track but cannot attend the meeting can contact the town clerk Hilary Elias on 01953 456194 or email enquiries@attleboroughtc.org.uk
