THE 2013/14 budget for sports facilities in Crowthorne and Sandhurst will be recommended for approval next month.

As part of the proposal - discussed at the Edgbarrow and Sandhurst Sports Centre management committee on Tuesday [8] - Crowthorne Parish Council's handout for Edgbarrow Sports Centre will be increased to �22,990.

This would see a jump of 3.2%, despite the parish council announcing last year that only 40% of members at the Grant Road facility are from the village itself.

Bracknell Forest Council would also contribute �242,170.

In addition, Sandhurst Sports Centre would receive �40,620 from Sandhurst Town Council, increased from �39,360 in 2012/13, and �174,810 from Bracknell Forest Council.

These contributions will be discussed at the Bracknell Forest Council executive committee in February.
