Our new pitch is finished, well ahead of schedule:
And our clubhouse is well advanced, also ahead of schedule, but still a lot to do.
I know the first question everyone asks is 'When can we play on it?'
Whilst the pitch is ready, the access to it is not: the entrance to the pitch is by the clubhouse and very muddy; we can't safely get to the pitch and put down tarmac to stop mud getting on the pitch until the scaffolding for the clubhouse comes down, which is expected any day now that the roof and windows are nearly on.
So although we can't give firm dates just yet, if the weather continues to be fair and everything continues to plan, we hope to be playing the first matches and moving a lot of Sunday Juniors here in early to mid January.
We have also not yet finalised the date for electricity supply and we are working through interim generator options in case this should be delayed to allow us to move evening training under floodlights here too in a similar timescale.
As soon as we have firmer dates we will let you know, as I am sure everyone is desperate to play on it - it all looks fantastic, but we just need to wait a little longer!
Please note we are creating a paid part-time administration role to help manage the new facility. We are opening this up to all ACHC members / parents in the first instance, details of this are here.
