Faster, stronger, higher for @exeterBMXclub

BMX is part of the single speed community. Exeter Eagles is based (according to their website) on Cofton Rd Marsh Barton Trading Estate – Exeter EX2 8QW.

If you follow their twitter account (@exeterBMXclub) you might have seen that a few articles have been recently published because the club celebrated the completion of works to develop their track and facilities.

Funding is always needed and harder to get. Thankfully, the members of this BMX club are over the moon because “the track is now a centre of excellence with riders coming from all over the South West to compete and practice.” (Source Express & Echo)

Where does this funding coming from then? A local business dealing with skip hire from Exmouth to Barnstaple and in fact covering the Southwest has decided to go forward and support this sport too often ignored.

This is not the first time Coastal Recycling has been involved in the community – read more HERE.

Coastal is doing great work and ninety five percent of the waste collected is recycled.

There are two landfills around Exeter, which are managed by Coastal Recycling.

As stated by the local paper “When waste is deposited at landfill sites, tax must be charged for each tonne. This tax must be paid to the Government, however Coastal Recycling are allowed to retain a small percentage and can then distribute this by way of a grant to local community groups.

Overall a win-win situation which helps the planet and local projects. Some might say “what goes around, comes around“.

This is how it works and it is rather pleasing to see and hear that Devon communities are aware of keeping our countryside and cityscape as clean as possible. This is where everything starts. It is not hard but it is all about taking the right attitude.

So, now you know how it all happened. And why not, if you are running a club or community in need of support, a local company could be able to partially finance the initial idea.

It is by communicating that things can take place. It is only when asking and presenting a fully detailed project that something is achievable. Never look too far because the answer might be at your doorstep. This is what a community is about.
