In the words of that inspirational song by the late Andy Williams “We’re Almost There”
Since November 2011 the clubs Development and General Committees have been collaborating with N&BBC Councillors and Officers to structure a deliverable plan for Bedworth Cricket Club's Pavilion Development Vision.
At the same time BCC has been proactive by submitting several funding applications and in this respect in almost all submissions, we have been successful. This has enabled us to accumulate and appropriate significant fund contributions for the developments.
The support of all our partners has enabled our many funding applications mainly ECB, Sports England Inspired Facilities, and Warwickshire County Council Transformation Fund to be successful.
In conjunction with N&BBC, we have now concluded contracts placed with approved developers and works will now commence during the later part of April this year.
Substantially at this stage, the pavilion development project is structured into 3 phases. Phases 1&2 incorporate an extension to the Johnson Memorial Pavilion on the West side and refurbishments to accommodate 4 new Cricket and sports changing rooms, showers, officials room, first aid room disabled WC, female WC and boiler /plant room incorporating a high quality of accommodation and finish. The works in phases 1&2 will be under the control of N&BBC, Ashe Construction and support by BCC as required, all scheduled for completion by September 2017.
Phase 3 incorporating the Clubroom. Bar, Kitchen, facilities Male WC, all facilities will be developed under the Control of BCC and liaison with N&BBC and will be commenced during November 2017 or sooner and fully commissioned for the 2018 season.
During all of our negotiations, the club has been greatly supported by N&BBC and its officers and by our many partners in both the sporting and community involvement throughout the timeline of the project.
Many significant hurdles have been negotiated to establish sustainability for the future including a 30-year lease incorporating asset transfer.
Over the period of the 2017 season, much disruption will take place and we would appeal to all our members and patrons for patience and support to achieve the final outcome. At the end of the venture, we will with no doubt have a facility that all will be proud of and enable to enjoy as a Sporting and community hub and a legacy for following generations. We of course would have preferred the work to have taken place at the end of last season but it was not to be. We lost a significant amount of funding when WREN withdrew their offer because of delays to the project. The work has to start now else we run the risk of losing more funding due to the delays.
