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 firstname.lastname@example.org – all abilities welcome!
Please key an eye on our Facebook page for more information on up-and coming events.
