A GRANT for £2000 and winnings from the ‘Beat the Street’ challenge is to help Annan Youth Cycling Club (AYCC) improve its facilities.

Their clubhouse, Seaforth Pavilion, is in ‘desperate need of some tender loving care’, but progress is being made in fundraising efforts.
A statement from the club said: “We have been lucky enough to be awarded a grant of £2000 from the Community Safety Fund dependent on also securing match funding.”
And more money has come via the Beat the Street initiative, with AYCC saying: “What an inspiring community activity this turned out to be and what a cracking response from the AYCC posse.”
Members’ efforts generated £500, which will also go towards the pavilion refurbishment.
Coach Scott Irving says match-funding is needed for the £2000 grant, and said: “That would hopefully give us the money we need to the works estimated at about £4500 at the pavilion. That’s really just to stop it from deteriorating any further.”
AYCC have joined with three other local clubs to offer a south west winter race series, with the first event a cyclo-cross at the Everholm in Annan on November 7.
