Furness Firecrackers Roller Derby League are still desperately in need of a suitable home venue (10,000sq ft).
Can you help them?
Firecrackers need a smooth floor, typical wooden sports hall type is the best but smooth hard plastic, or concrete is just as good.
Anything rough obviously isn't suitable.
They would be looking at using it 4 - 5 times a week. Room for spectators would be a bonus so they can host home games again but even if they could find somewhere to train on a full track, they could forgo spectator room. Can you offer them somewhere? If you can, please contact Barrow Sports Council or Furness Firecrackers.

Hindpool Tigers Secretary Phil Cubiss and Chair Graham Shaw are seen here presenting the kit to Sports Council secretary Charlotte Whitwell.
If you club has any spare kit for any sport, we would be happy to have them.
