A&D Get Sporty!!

A&D Get Sporty!!

We at A&D Joinery are delighted to announce our latest community endeavour - the main sponsorship of local Football Team Tempest United AFC.

Tempest United was formed in the late 1940s and is based at the ‘Famous Shed’ clubhouse in Chew Moor, so named as it started out life as a chicken shed donated to the Club by a Darwen Farmer! Fortunately, times have improved, and they have graduated to a brick structure that not only welcomes around a hundred supporters per match but is also a community centre hosting events such as quiz nights, councillors surgeries, christenings, birthdays and various club activities.

The Club, which has charity status and is FA Charter Standard accredited runs two teams, one of which plays in the West Lancs Premier Division, has a big focus on bringing up young talent which is why Tempest and A&D Joinery are such a good fit. A&D also recognises the importance of fresh talent as shown by our apprenticeship programme, which we run annually and which is predominately aimed at young people in our community. We are very excited to get involved with the Club and to give a little back.

Unfortunately, the clubhouse is not currently open due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully, this will change shortly, and it will be full steam ahead – hope to see you all there!!
