Formed in 1996, GST is a charitable trust that maintains Graveshams only astro-turf pitch, at Gravesend Rugby Club. The trust has representatives from Gravesend Grammar School, Gravesend Rugby Club, Gravesend Ladies Hockey Club, Gravesham & Wellcome Hockey Club, Old Gravesendians Rugby Club and Meopham Ladies Hockey Club whose role is to support the management and continued development of the astro facilities for the local community.

The Trust is a registered charity (number: 1053451) and is always very keen to receive donations. We are actively seeking funding to renew the surface of the astro-turf pitch. So if you can help or you know anyone who has funding we can apply for please contact any member of the Exec Committee or email us at: enquiries@graveshamsportstrust.org.uk

GST has been maintaining the current astro-turf for local schools and sports clubs since 1996. Now, the astro is in need of replacement, so GST has been running events and activities to help raise the whopping £250,000 required. In the last year, we have run quiz nights, a race night, a mixed-hockey tournament, participated in a half marathon and more.
In September 2017, we have a team participating in the London to Brighton bike ride. If you’d like to join the team, please send us an email at enquiries@graveshamsportstrust.org.uk – all abilities welcome!

Please key an eye on our Facebook page for more information on up-and coming events.
