To support the development of not only our junior section but secure the longevity of the club we are at a point where our facilities are in serious need of updating. To give you an example of our challenges we have no showing facilities at the club and no provision for girls to change separately. Our plan is to build a new and modern clubhouse on its current footprint. This facility will give us the changing facilities we desperately need to support or growing playing members and also a clubhouse facility which will enable us to continue to generate the much needed revenue to support the clubs future.
We also recognise the village is in desperate need of more facilities to support community activities for all ages and this is something we are hoping to address through this project.
Engagement has been made with our members and the local community and we have a design we believe will meet the needs of the club and all its future users. We have also had really positive conversations with Sports England and the ECB around funding support but have a deficit between this and what we have raised ourselves over the last few years.
We are committed to making this work and have further conversations with Sports England next week where we are hoping to finalise their funding and push on with planning permission for the build. Our aim is to begin the new build (demolition of the old building) in mid September 2021 when the 2021 season finishes.
We recognise that COVID has hit everyone hard and appreciate any donation towards our target.
