Northumberland Estates recognises the role of sport in our local communities and supports several sports clubs, groups and organisations through financial and non-financial assistance.
Past projects include land donated to Northumberland County Council for the construction of Willowburn Leisure Centre which brought a new swimming pool and sports facilities to Alnwick. Land was also donated to Longhoughton Rangers Football Club for their football academy and Alnwick Town football club has benefited from financial support for many years. Alnwick Castle Golf Club is the latest club to benefit from a significant investment which facilitated the development of a new clubhouse as well as other facilities.
We are also proud to host sporting events such as the Northumberland School Games and the NE Youth Clay Pigeon Shoot which delivers new opportunities for participation as well as a sense of community in the local area.
