John Allen, Director for Thomas Bow City Asphalt said: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring this event at the site of one of our key projects that is delivering a wonderful new focal point and facility for the people of Cotgrave and the surrounding area.
“It’s really important to us that we engage with the communities in which we work and promoting health, sport and wellbeing is particularly important to us, as we support many of the local sports clubs.
“Our association with Sunday Funday will only build on the rapport we have built up with local people and businesses in the town whilst works take place on this stunning new precinct and we can’t wait to welcome the event.”
Cotgrave Town Council have also been working with the authority to engage with local residents on the fun day. Free parking is available at nearby Candleby Lane School from 12pm to 4.30pm.
Both councils are encouraging event goers to walk, cycle or use public transport wherever possible when they attend.
