Whats happening at the Pavilion?
Autumn 2022 - Our contractors have reduced the height of the car-park perimeter hedging. Over the last few years this had grown way too high, making the car-park very secluded. To improve visibility and safety of our users we have had the shrubs extensively cut back, we know it looks a little harsh but it will soon green up and start to look lovely! We have also been in touch with the owner of the vehicles left in the car park and they will soon be on their way! Next on the list is the exterior lighting, we know we have a few bulbs out, and we will be taking steps to remedy that in the very near future.
October 2022 - We have installed CCTV inside and outside the pavilion. This makes for a safer environment for users and staff.
November 2022 - Ongoing maintenance work to the internal workings of the building have been continuing since we took over. This includes, plant room servicing, expansion vessel replacements, replacing leaking toilets and a complete overhaul of the underfloor heating system.
January 2023 - Our contractors have trimmed back much of the surrounding hedges and greenery to make site lines for people entering the car-park clearer and making pathways wider.
February 2023 - The Parish Council are now operating from the Pavilion on a permanent basis and all the staff are now located there. The Estate Officer is patrolling the area on a daily basis to ensure the playing fields and car park are kept as litter free as possible.
