Plumpton Plastic Challenge
We’ve just completed the Pavilion refurbishment, which has given us a substantial upgrade of the facilities.
The refurbishment was part-funded by a LEADER grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (£49k), and the remainder from our New Pavilion Fund (£28k) and the Parish Council (£7.5k).
With many thanks to Des Lambert, who helped us navigate the grant application process, and to parish councillor Emma Elford, who led renovation programme, got the grants, liaised with everyone involved.
The refurbishment has included:
- removal of the old kitchen to open up the space
- re-positioning of a new kitchen and utility room into the old committee room
- recovering of the floor throughout
- reconfiguring of the changing rooms
- increased storage facilities
- substantial replacing of rotten timbers throughout the infrastructure
- replacement of multiple doors
- replacement of window glass
- part installation of new composite cladding and sofits
- substantial re-plastering work throughout
- roof repair.
Steve Bodsworth was the contractor. We owe him many thanks for doing a fantastic job to a very high standard and completing on time.
As with all building jobs, we found some unexpected problems along the way that Steve responded to quickly, which allowed us to keep on schedule.
Now the work is complete, it has highlighted other parts of the facility that are looking a bit tired. Plumpton Parish Council will be costing further work to maintain this valued facility within a long-term preventative maintenance programme. We’ll provide further details in due course, later this year.
