Sports, Arts & Leisure

We see the marina as a future opportunity for jobs, leisure and tourism. With the closure of the mine, many of the traditional sporting activities in Stainforth have declined and we intend to encourage a rebirth of these activities to increase the sense of community, fight obesity and develop a sense of pride in our town and in ourselves.

Some local residents have founded a new drama group, hoping to be the first of many clubs and groups returning to Stainforth in the near future.
