Rotary give �2,000 to flooded tennis club
Newton Poppleford Tennis Club has been handed �2,000 to help renovate the facilities after flood damage.
The Rotary Club of Otter Valley obtained considerable funds to help rebuild Tipton St John’s tennis club after the floods devastated it several years ago.
The club said having heard about this, the Newton Poppleford and Harpford tennis players also approached the Rotarians for assistance, after their courts suffered a similar disaster.
A spokesman for Otter Valley rotary Club said: “The Community Committee felt that the request merited action, and so contacted Rotary International Britain and Ireland’s (RIBI) Emergencies Fund holder.
“They agreed with Otter Valley that the case merited support and released monies accordingly.”
