Barrow Raiders are asking for extra volunteers to drop by and help spruce up their Craven Park stadium.

The club need people to come down from 9am on Sunday and assist the volunteers who have been refurbishing areas under the main stand in the last few weeks.

The Raiders have a few other tasks that need to be carried out around the stadium and no specific skills are required for anyone who does turn up, although it would be considered helpful if they bring their own paint brush.

Among the renovating jobs on the to-do list is repainting the perimeter walls around the pitch and anyone who has some masonry paint they’d like to donate is requested to come forward.

Work, to include sanding, cleaning and painting, will be going on until midday and volunteers are asked to let the club know if they will be coming along via their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Although rugby league hasn’t been played at Craven Park since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, the stadium hasn’t been laying dormant for the whole time, with the beer garden on the pitch proving successful since lockdown measures were eased on July 4.

The ground also hosted the first music festival to be held in Barrow since then when Summer Soul was moved from its usual venue of Barrow Park.

However, it is unclear at the moment when the next rugby match will be taking place there.
