Sutton Bridge new pavilion plans underway with project due to be presented to the public

A project for a new village sports pavilion is nearing reality – with the details set to be presented to the public.

A committee from Sutton Bridge Parish Council will discuss plans for a new facility at the parish council meeting on Tuesday, October 17, at the Curlew Centre.

Members of the public are able to attend the meeting, at 6pm, where a slide-show will demonstrate plans including a changing room for footballers and a space big enough to introduce other sports to the community.

Retired project manager Laurence Marchant is presenting the plans - and David Earth and David Wall are involved in the project.

Mr Marchant said: “It started life as a football pavilion and we want to make it a sports pavilion.

“We would like to include indoor sports and have a quiet area to sit down in, a kitchen and changing room.”

The other sports would include carpet bowls, netball and table tennis – a balance between what people want and what we can afford.

Mr Laurence said: “We are getting through to the next stages and the final stage is funding.

“We have looked at versions of different buildings, ground surveys, and how much it will cost – we put it out to tender, the planning people can look at what’s wrong and right – and hopefully it will be up and running by some time next year.

“It will be a place for younger and older people to go and we are working in conjunction with the Curlew Centre – ours is not a community centre, we do what they don’t.

“It will make the area a little better and it would be beneficial to everybody.”
