New pavilion prepares for opening

The new pavilion at King George V playing fields in Winchester is nearing completion.

The project, which has been funded by Winchester City Council alongside grant funding from the Football Foundation, replaces two outdated pavilions with a single, larger accessible facility.

This new facility will offer six changing rooms and communal space for community use. Built with sustainability in mind, it has solar panels and a ‘green’ roof which will improve thermal insulation, store carbon, reduce energy consumption and reduce water runoff.

The pavilion will officially open to the public later this spring.

Winchester City Council’s Cabinet Member for Community and Engagement Councillor Kathleen Becker said: “It’s very exciting to see the significant progress which has been made at this modern facility, which has incorporated energy-saving measures to ensure that it is a greener and more sustainable building. It will be open to the public soon.

“The pavilion will be another fantastic asset for the district’s thousands of people who come to this site to participate in sport, whilst supporting the continued development of grassroots football and cricket - and also offering light and airy space for social and business use to the local community.”
