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.
The bad news is that we have had to now suspend all work on our new clubhouse due to the government announcement of further restrictions to curb the spread of Covid-19. This is only the right to do so that we can keep any operatives and our own committee members safe and well.
However, we have now completed the block and beam floor and some of the underground drainage is in place. When we return to normal working the next hurdles will be the disposal of rainwater and further plumbing before more brickwork is completed.
We will keep you up to date as to when further works will take place.
