Newark and Sherwood District Council selected Nottinghamshire YMCA as its partner for the new Sports and Community Village in the heart of Newark. Plans include a cycling track, multi-use all-weather sports pitches and a six-lane full-size athletics track endorsed by England Athletics. The plans also show five-a-side pitches, a skate park and a stadium football pitch. The project is designed to be used by the whole community; alongside the YMCA, we believe in a holistic approach to sports and family activity.

At the heart of the development is a community building, which will be home to a large family friendly café and function rooms. Specialist facilities within the community building provide space for children’s activities including dance, music-production and pottery, as well as accredited hospitality and catering training schemes. The plans also incorporate an adult education programme and a nursery.
