Sports Ground Pavilion Extension and Refurbishment:
Despite the wet weather over the last month, the extension and refurbishment of the pavilion are going well. The extension is to provide long overdue toilet facilities in the building including facilities for the disabled and a referee’s changing room. The refurbishment of the building will include a new kitchen, replacement of all windows and doors together with a redecoration of the whole building. The veranda posts will be renewed and a path will surround the building to allow wheelchair access directly from the car park.
Payment of this modernisation has come from a generous grant from Sport England (part of the National Lottery) and from our Section 106 allocation from Tunbridge Wells Borough Council. The Parish Council hopes that, with the much-improved pavilion, there will be an increased interest from Sandhurst in using our large and attractive Sports Ground for a wide range of sports including those provided by the Football and Cricket clubs.
If you are interested or know someone who might be interested as a player or to help in these clubs the contacts are:
