THE PENNYPIT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TRUST Pat O'Brien
The opening of the new and upgraded facilities at Pennypit Park
was a proud day for the people of Prestonpans. This superb sports
ground is undoubtedly an asset to our community, improving the
quality of life and leisure, and opening up sport to people of
all ages and interests.
There are full-time staff employed to encourage even greater use
of these facilities: coaching has been introduced to involve a
wider range of sporting activities.
Pennypit represents the future for community sports developments
and I hope that it will encourage more young people to take an
interest in sport, as well as groups who traditionally might feel
sport is not for them.
I am particularly pleased that special facilities for our disabled
citizens have been introduced and I feel that Pennyypit Park is
fulfilling our hopes for leisure and sport facilities for all.
