I’ve blogged a number of times previously about how Lydiate Parish Council is upgrading its sports/fitness/football facilities at Sandy Lane Playing Field. The works include new additional changing rooms (which should be put in place towards the end of May) and a big refurb’ of the existing changing rooms. Additionally, outdoor fitness equipment has been relocated from LPCs Village Centre Site in Lambshear Lane and land drainage under the football pitches is actively under investigation with a view to resolving water-logging issues as far as possible.
The project is complex and is being supported financially by the Football Assn. One of the significant aims is to get to a position where women’s football is properly catered for. And there’s still another big issue which we need to find a way forward for; turning the tennis courts into a multi-sports area (MUGA) with a much-improved surface, but not everything can be tackled at once.
These two photos show some remarkable progress with regard to the old changing rooms which are being transformed as I type this blog-piece:-
A disability toilet has already been installed and there’s a bespoke fitted out area in the present building for the making of refreshments/a community cafe.
