VC Venta awarded £370 under Winchester City Council’s Town Forum Small Grant Scheme

VC Venta has received a very welcome grant of £370 from Winchester City Council under its Town Forum Small Grant Scheme. The funds have been used to purchase equipment to support the Club’s ever growing, successful, youth training and racing programme.

The equipment purchased includes a battery powered bicycle pressure washer (and battery packs) for use with the Club’s youth cyclo-cross team racing in the forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2020 cyclo-cross racing season, both locally under the Wessex League and Nationally. This allows for off-grid bike washing in the pits by our indispensable parent helpers when our youth team members are racing. In addition a commercial size catering urn was purchased to provide teas and coffees to the Club’s coaches, parents and helpers when our Go-Ride youth cycle training sessions as well as the Club’s racing events are held at the Winchester South Park and Ride venue.

Unfortunately with the COVID-19 lock down, the new equipment has had to be put safely aside ready to be used when the Club’s activities can start again.

Thank you Winchester City Council for your continued generous support.
