Following Shrivenham's summer pitch improvements, work to improve the clubhouse drainage at Barrington Park is well under way with the help of clubs sponsors, SPA Construction.
The work is part of the phased improvements being undertaken by the club aimed at improving the facilities for all of our teams and opposition sides, as well as everybody who visits Barrington Park and games will continue (rain dependent!) while the work is being carried out.
“Issues with the club’s waste water have gradually been causing problems over the last few seasons, and it was something that was high on the agenda when I took over,” club Chairman Matt Hirst said. “Like any small club, you have to prioritise the workload and I think we’ve certainly done that and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to start this project earlier than we had expected."
“We’ve held work parties to help clear the area behind the clubhouse as well as the gun club and club sponsors SPA Construction have been brought in to help our Maintenance Manager Roger Sheppard get the work completed. They’re doing so at a massively reduced rate and as a local company, club sponsor and great supporter of everything we are doing here at the club, I can’t thank Steve Allen [owner of SPA Construction] enough for his continued support.”
The current phase of works involves repairing the draining run away at the club which in turn will prevent drainage in the locker rooms and the gun club from overflowing.
Concluding, the Chairman added: “This project is just another example of our Committee’s approach and will benefit the club and the local community for many decades to come as we continue to make Barrington Park the hub for everybody in the village and surrounding area to enjoy.”
