As a result of consultation it was found that a severe shortage of recreational organisation and facilities to develop sporting skills, create a sense of well-being and promote an interest in community pride and improving local infrastructure to create inward investment. In 1984 Spring View Sports and Social Club was formed to meet these needs.
In 2002 the club changed its name to Spring View Community Sports Association to best reflect the wider community sporting aspirations it was meeting.
The club provides facilities for the community in many ways including social events, family events, active living events. Examples of the kinds of activities that are taking place on a regular basis which are providing a much needed sense of community cohesion are:
- Active Living Social Evenings
- Entertainment Nights
- Family Race Nights
- Bonfire Night - 1500 attendees including fairground, controlled firework display, kitchen
- Spectators at rugby & football matches are from all generations
- Halloween event
- Easter bingo
- Charity Football competition fun day organised by Christies Hospital. Stalls etc.
The Club is also the home of Spring View ARLFC and Spring View FC, whose affiliation with the Club gives local children and adults the opportunity to play and the enjoy the health and social benefits of being involved with a local team.
