The sportsmanship and fair play certificates were presented to children at New Road and Park Lane primary schools by the Mayor of Whittlesey, Councillor Julie Windle.

Janette Bowdon the sports coordinator for both schools, said she was delighted with the sessions that had been supported from the Burnt House Wind Farm funds and provided by the Peterborough and Fenland Referee Development Scheme.

“The children had a great time,” she said. “The values of sportsmanship, fair play and respect for the match official are very high on our sporting curriculum. We were very grateful to Robert for his time and effort.”

Councillor Ralph Butcher, the most recent past mayor, was also on hand to assist.

The certificates were the result of each school being visited for six sessions by Football Association referee tutor Robert Windle.

The Burnt House Wind Farms fund helps people who live in Whittlesey, Turves, Eastrea, Benwick, Coates, Wimblington, Doddington and the parts of March which are within a five mile radius of the wind farm.

Charitable projects are supported if they demonstrate it would benefit a material proportion of the local community.

Grants are offered in the range of £250 to £6,000.
