WORK BEGINS: Excitement as plans for new cricket club pavilion on Common get underway

 Published on: 17th November 2021   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

After months of planning, work on Chorleywood Cricket’s Club new pavilion has finally begun. 

The demolition of the original 1960s-era building, which has slowly fallen into ruin, has started in earnest. This paves the way for construction of the club’s new premises, which should be ready to open by autumn next year.

The pavilion of the future will allow for the expansion of the team to explore new avenues, providing suitable facilities for women, girls and people with disabilities. 

A café run by charity Mission EmployAble, and Buckinghamshire College Group will also be included as part of the new build. It’ll be open every day serving homemade food and provide training for young people with learning disabilities via supported internships.

A statement issued by the Cricket Club and Mission EmployAble says: “We are delighted that contractors are now on site, the new building will be a huge asset to cricketers and the community, as well as enriching the lives of young people with a learning disability.

We will work hard to protect the Common during the building works and minimise inconvenience to residents. We really do appreciate your patience while the car park is closed during the build.”

Robert Voss CBE CStJ HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, said: “Having lived on and around Chorleywood Common for nearly 30 years, it is great to see the old cricket pavilion being rebuilt and put to such good use by the Cricket Club and Mission EmployAble. 

“It is a win-win situation for all, and I am delighted to be able to support this great initiative and congratulate all those involved. I look forward to my morning coffee in the pavilion.”
