They do like the grass to grow under their feet at Stalbridge Football Club so the members are particularly grateful to Velvit, the turf-care fertiliser brand based in Henstridge.

The company has extended its support of local organisations by sponsoring for another year.

Stalbridge Football Club, established in 1989, was the 2018-19 Dorset Senior League Current Dorset County Cup Champions.

Velvit is part of the GreenBest group of fertilisers – founded over 20 years ago by local entrepreneur Tim Le Mesurier. The Velvit brand is used all over the world in some of the top venues, including the Olympics and the upcoming 2022 Football World Cup in Qatar.

James Whittick, Sales & Marketing Director at Velvit said: “As a local company, we like to support other local, sympathetic organisations as best we can – whether fiscal, sharing products or knowledge and expertise.

Stalbridge FC is a brilliant local club which gives back a huge amount to the community so, in turn, we are proud to support them in this way. I wish them every luck in the upcoming season, which has already started so promisingly.”
