Cowpen Ward Councillor Susan Davey said "Labour has only been in office for the last eight weeks
With the news that Labour in Northumberland have secured almost £80,000 for the improvement of Cowpen Playing Fields through a mixture of Section 106 and Sport England money the future of the playing fields seems secure for years to come. Pressure is often placed on Councils especially by small to medium builders looking to gain a fast buck to developed playing fields where the surface is looking tired and thatched. Securing Sport England finance will ensure that these playing fields do not fall into that category. Cowpen Ward Councillor Susan Davey said "Labour has only been in office for the last eight weeks so I'm very pleased that the Council has decided to invest in these fields after being ignored for the last five years, they are incredibly popular and an improved playing surface will certainly benefit the teams who have made Cowpen Fields their home, Outdoor sport is increasingly important in built up areas like Cowpen where pressure on space from builders is fierce and they will use all sorts of ploys to ease themselves into communities to make hay from public assets."
