Havant Borough Council given grant to transform the Pavilion in Barton’s Green
The pavilion in Barton’s Green, Havant, is set to be transformed after funding was secured to refurbish the facility.
The Football Foundation has awarded Havant Borough Council and Widbrook United FC a grant of £203,451 from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund to upgrade the facility.
The refurbishment includes six new changing rooms, a match officials changing room; spectator toilets; a storage area; and a revamped club room and kitchen area.
Widbrook United FC, a long-established community football club based in Havant, currently use and maintain the pavilion. The refurbishment will enable the club to offer more opportunities for boys, girls, teenagers and adults to get involved in football.
Construction will be carried out by HP Contracts and is due to be completed by early next year.
