3G Artificial Football Pitch Project

Our local need A public access all-weather sports pitch is a normal part of a modern community. Go anywhere in Europe, even the smallest, poorest town has a floodlit synthetic turf pitch where everyone can play outdoors all year round. Every week in Chiltern District, more than 200 teams play football and rugby, but our District is the only one in this region with no all-weather pitch to train or play on. Project concept To fill the gap, Chiltern Hills Academy in Chesham is leading a well organised project to build Chiltern Hills 3G - a full-size public access all-weather pitch on the school campus. It will be used by schools in school hours and by clubs in the evenings, weekends and holidays. The surface looks and feels like natural grass and is designed to bounce and roll just like the real thing: 3G stands for 3rd generation synthetic turf. In their newly published Playing Pitch Strategy, Chiltern District Council has recognised the strategic need for more investment in synthetic grass pitches in the Chilterns. The FA and England Rugby want to use the Chiltern Hills 3G pitch to boost their game. The FA is,for example, keen to see more women players, more opportunities for disabled players and to grow walking football for older players. We now have the serious prospect that, for the first time in the Chilterns, girls, boys, and players of all ages will be running out and kicking balls on a fabulous state of the art facility they can use whatever the weather.

Story

It is time there was a 3G artificial football pitch in Chesham accessible to schools and the wider community. The strong support from the local community and linked sporting teams is needed to ensure the success of this project. We are particularly pleased to be working closely with local football clubs: Chesham United Youth FC, Chesham United Ladies FC and Chesham Athletic FC. They are an essential part of our campaign and cannot wait to use the pitch.

We now have planning permission for this important community development. With more donations we will be able to start the construction in the Autumn and have the football pitch ready for the Spring.

It's going to make such a difference - when other teams laughed at our home pitches, as the coach, I promised my Chesham Utd YFC players I'd not rest until they had facilities they could be proud of.
