A renewed appeal is being made for organisations in Haverhill that may be interested in taking on the football/basketball court adjacent to the Burton Centre - allowing it to remain in use.

The court is currently closed due to the deteriorating condition of its surface and the surrounding walls and fences, together with the lack of management options.

Suffolk County Council made an initial public appeal six weeks ago and has since worked hard to engage with local organisations to allow it to remain open, however no feasible solution has been found.

Alternative options are being considered but the council is urging any organisation with a viable proposal for the court’s future use and management to contact Clair Harvey on 01473 265304.
