Cherry Hinton Pavillion
We have recently completed rebuilding and extending the recreation ground pavilion in Cherry Hinton, Cambridgeshire, home of Cherry Hinton FC and the Cherry Hinton Lions. The project was undertaken by Cambridgeshire City Council to ensure the teamsȇ facilities can match their playing success and meet the requirements of the FA’s Charter Standard.
Cherry Hinton FC play in the Cambridgeshire County League and the Lions play in the Cambridgeshire FA Mini Soccer and Cambridge and District Colts leagues. This was a very important community project for Cherry Hinton and the Cambridge area, as the new changing facilities will not only serve three senior teams, but as many as 17 youth football teams with ages ranging from under 6 to 17.
As well as new team and officials changing rooms, the new pavilion has more than doubled the capacity of the old facility, and now incorporates 26 showers, a new kitchen / meeting room, external equipment store, and accessible paving and entrance.
Whilst predominantly planned as an extension, once underway the original building was discovered to be suffering from extensive timber decay, meaning much of the original walls and roof had to be replaced, prior to the internal refurbishment and installation of modern washable wall and floor surfaces.
A new water supply was also installed, along with new internal services, electrics, hot and cold water distribution and heating, LED lighting and drainage.
