New goalposts for Braunton
The goalposts were purchased with a donation from an anonymous resident to prevent damage to a shelter in the village.
A NEW set of goalposts have been put up in Braunton’s recreational ground for young people to use.
The project came about after damage was caused to the Illingworth Shelter and houses behind it by young people using it as a goal post.
They were also climbing into the garden over the boundary wall to retrieve the balls which were overshot, causing privacy and security issues among residents.
A local person, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated �1,000 towards finding a solution to the problem.
