Our plans for the pavilion
For the past three years, the Friends of Spencer Park have been working on plans to refurbish the Edwardian pavilion in the centre of Spencer Park. This work has been progressing, along with the efforts to install new playground equipment, create a cycle track for young children and to recondition the tennis courts.
All this hard work is now beginning to pay off. We've raised the first half of the funds needed from public sources: now, we need your support to obtain additional funds to finish the work.
This is a major undertaking. The plan is to open up the interior of the building to create a large community space, a modern café and new toilets. The interior space will house exhibitions showcasing local heritage articles and photographs, and the work of local artists. The space will be used as a café in the daytime, but will be available for children’s parties from 4pm to 6pm and for community groups from 7pm to 9pm.
