As the return of BBL and WBBL action approaches, along with the new NBL and CVL seasons for our academy and junior club players, preparations are taking place both in and outside our Eagles Community Arena.

Last month our Eagles Community Foundation, the charity who own and operate the ECA, appealed to Eagles basketball fans and business across the region to join our staff in helping to get the arena grounds in the best possible condition with some gardening.

Staff from media agencies Carat and iProspect, part of Dentsu Aegis Network, joined forces to get to work on one of the first patches of the arena’s surrounding landscape in a fun morning making a huge difference and supporting our foundation.

A huge thank you to the whole team for all their help and we look forward to seeing them back at the ECA.

If you and a group of colleagues or friends would like to lend a green-fingered hand to our project please read more our gardening activity or call 0191 2453880.
