Ceremony to launch £200,000 pavilion
12:10pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
A turf digging ceremony will be held today to mark the start of a new £200,000 pavilion.
The facilty on Old Netley’s King George V Playing Field is being replaced with a new fully-equipped and accessible building. The event will start at noon and the ceremony will be performed by the chair of Hound Parish Council, Cllr John Forder.
Representatives of funders, Hampshire Council Council and Eastleigh Borough Council have been invited and they will be joined by members of Hound Parish Council and Gentle Consulting Limited as well as the construction company HH Drew Limited.
The £200,000 project, led by Hound Parish Council, will build a new structure for the many people who use the playing field to play a variety of sports including football, rugby league and a soccer school for youngsters. The new building could be ready as early as June next year.
The bulk of the funding for the work, £147,000, is coming from the parish council’s own reserves and fundraising activities, which have included the proceeds from the sale of the Old Netley Reading Rooms on Portsmouth Road, in 2008.
The Veolia Environmental Trust have also awarded £22,000 through the Landfill Communities Fund, Developers’ Contributions via Eastleigh Borough Council have awarded £33,000, Hampshire Playing Fields Association £1,000 and Hampshire County Council have awarded £2,000.
