Restored cricket pavilion gets a second innings!

A run-down cricket pavilion which we restored as part of our Cholsey Meadows development in Oxfordshire has been formally handed over to the local community trust.

In its heyday during the 1970s and 1980s the building hosted benefit matches between Kent CCC and a team from the site’s Fairmile Hospital, which has been transformed into homes.

Even England cricket captain Colin Cowdrey once took to the crease that the pavilion looks out onto, but it has since fallen into disrepair.

However, now it has been returned to its former glory by our Chiltern region and handed over to the Cholsey Community Trust, set up to ensure the development blends sensitively into the neighbouring village of Cholsey.

Fiona Mullins, from the trust, said: “The handover was just in time for our Christmas party, which we held in the pavilion on Sunday. Around 100 people turned up for mulled wine and mince pies – it was a brilliant occasion.

“The community is really happy to have the pavilion back – the cricket club will have priority but it will also be a great space for smaller gatherings and groups. We’ve already got local people asking about how they can book it.”
