William Dyer Electrical UK Ltd secure Electrical Installations for October 2019

William Dyer Electrical UK Ltd have been chosen to undertake the electrical installations at this exciting new facility.

Accrington Stanley Community Trust have been working on this project since October 2019 and commissioned an in depth feasibility study which was led by a team of external consultants. The findings were very positive, and the Higham Playing Field’s site was selected as the best location for the Sports Hub. The plans include a brand new fit for purpose multi use building to replace the current building on the site. A full size floodlit artificial football pitch will drive up sport participation rates all year round. Three grass pitches which will cater for various formats of football and rugby will be renovated to a high standard.

A brand new ECB approved artificial cricket wicket will provide a fantastic facility for local cricket leagues and schools. In addition, there will be a 75 space car park added to the site to ease traffic congestion on Thorneyholme road.

The Sports Hub Building

A brand new building will replace the current building which no longer meets the minimum requirements to service the site effectively. A fully functioning single storey structure made from a combination of brick and cladding to the exterior gives a welcoming and modern feel.

Through the main entrance is a 50 seat cafeteria and breakout space for participants, parents and the general public to relax and enjoy hot and cold refreshments. Table tennis and pool tables are planned along with a number of vending machines for quick and easy snacks. Public toilet facilities are included in this section.

The Sports Facilities

A full size floodlit artificial football pitch is located on the lower section of the site and will provide a fantastic playing experience for its users. The pitch can be split into a variety of playing areas suitable for 5, 7, 9 and 11aside football. This state of the art pitch will have protected use on evenings and weekends for local grassroots clubs and community activities.
