After years and years in the planning by FC Elmstead, supported by FOCRG, the semi derelict pavilion in Chislehurst Rec is finally due to be demolished and a fantastic new facility built.
Demolition works are planned to start on 29th January 2018 and to be completed in July 2018.
To minimise risks to park users, the builders have been granted permission from L B Bromley to access the site from the end of Willow Vale. During this time, they will obviously keep the disruption to a minimum and will attempt to avoid peak times for deliveries and unloading.
In place of the current building, we shall be getting a great new clubhouse with modern facilities. Plus the added bonus of a cafe and - much to the relief of many a parent with young children playing in the playground - toilets open to the public during restricted hours! No more wild wees in the woods!
Funding for the project has come from a number of sources including the Football Foundation, The Chislehurst Playing Fields Association and The Chislehurst Society.
Full credit should go to FC Elmstead for their tireless work in securing this fantastic new community asset. It's been an uphill struggle at times, but the result will surely be worth it. Thanks FC Elmstead!
