After many years of designing and planning, work started on Friday 31st May 2019 for the clubs new Changing Rooms and Hospitality facilities.
Planning permission was granted along with our Grandstand, Floodlights and Perimeter Fencing a few years ago, but it is only now, after achieving an FA Football Stadia Grant, a grant from The Snodland Partnership and various donations and sponsorship from within the club and local community, that we have got to the position of building work commencing.
This is a major step in the clubs history as it will make us totally self contained within the ground, satisfying all Southern Counties East Football League requirements. It will also enable the club to move forward in its ambition to reach a higher level in the national football pyramid.
Club Chairman, Dave Jeal, commented. “This is a momentous step forward in the clubs history and my grateful thanks goes to those within the club who put in a great deal of time and effort to achieve this moment. Thanks must also go to several supporters of the club who have also given time or donations towards this project.”
Currently there is no completion date but we will be keeping you updated on the progress of the build. Photos will appear below throughout the various stages of construction so that you can gauge how the project is progressing.
Update: 9 July 2020
All work is being concentrated on completing the changing rooms for the start of the new season – whenever that may be.
With the first fix of the electrics finished the plumbers have been busy with their first fix. This should be complete early next week enabling the plaster boarding of the ceiling and walls to also be completed.
Next Saturday (18th July) we have plasterers starting. First the ceiling then on to the walls.
Our rainwater dispersal still needs to be resolved as we are waiting on a consultants report.
Watch this space for regular updates as the project is gathering momentum.
