A new sports pavilion and community hall has officially opened at Nicholls Field.
The former derelict sports pavilion was given a major makeover in 2017. It has now been completely transformed and on Saturday 10 March 2018 an official opening event was held by the first tenants of the building Kazen Kai Martial Arts.
A ribbon to mark the opening was cut by the Chair of Harlow Council, Councillor Sue Livings, who was joined by the Bush Fair Ward Councillors and representatives from Kazen Kai. After cutting the ribbon, councillors were treated to an exhibition of martial arts by some of the club’s members.
The new building includes four changing rooms, a changing room for officials, an office, disabled toilets and a community hall. The refurbishment was virtually a new build with new foundations, a new pitched roof, improved access and fencing and changes to the internal layout of the building. There have also been drainage improvements made to the six adult size football pitches.
The Council is currently in discussions with local community organisations and sports clubs and the Essex FA regarding the use of the pitches and changing rooms. The Council is also planning to refurbish the adjacent multi-use-games-area outdoor area.
