Whats happening at the Pavilion?
November 2023 - November has brought a wave of positive changes to Broughton Pavilion. We are thrilled to announce our success in securing Section 106 funding, which has given us the opportunity to enhance and improve the pavilion's facilities for our residents.
Our first project was the construction of a canopy at the back of the building. This new addition, along with the benches, will create a perfect spectator area for various activities taking place on the field, while also providing a sheltered space for parents picking up their children from Chipmonks Pre-School.
Our next project will focus on enhancing the vast foyer area. We plan to build a new meeting room, create an internet access area, and add a comfortable seating area. Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming soon!
