King George V Community Sports Hub will be a fantastic new sports facility for the Chester community.
The £1.6 million scheme includes a new floodlit full size 3G artificial grass pitch , two improved full size grass pitches with new drainage , a new clubhouse with office, four changing rooms and a multi-functional community room with kitchen and bar , refurbishment of the existing pavilion to provide two changing rooms, office, classroom and kitchen , enhanced access to the site and new car parking
The project aims to increase participation in sport, improve health and wellbeing in Cheshire West and create new education, employment, training and volunteering opportunities for local residents. It will provide a high quality sporting venue for the city and community facilities for functions, events and activities.
The scheme will be funded through grants from national governing bodies and funding agencies together with contributions from Cheshire West & Chester Council and Chester FC Community Trust, who will be responsible for the maintenance and operation of the sports hub.
Thousands of people will enjoy the facilities each week with the project providing much needed investment in grassroots sport and revitalising a site that is currently underused and in need of significant improvement.
