Fundraising for the 'Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pavilion' upgrade


Fundraising Target: £247,000


  • Why the Pavilion needs upgrading?

o Built in the 1960s the external fabric is progressively disintegrating.

o The basic structure fails to meet current energy efficiency and disability access standards.

o Its services fail to meet the needs of a thriving, active and growing population, limiting its usability for a wide group of the population.


  • Why a Queen’s Jubilee ‘Project’?

o The Pavilion holds significance to a wide range of Ashwell residents. A major refurbishment would be a suitable and durable tribute to Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years of service.

o The recent death of Queen Elizabeth underlines the merit of such a lasting legacy.

o The upgraded Pavilion will be known as ‘Queen Elizabeth 11 Pavilion’ and a plaque unveiled accordingly.


  • Upgrade details

o The total cost of the upgrade is currently forecast at £407,000.

o The design will extend the current footprint by +35.5m2 to 182.5m2

o The upgraded Pavilion will retain the current appearance, but the core structure will be fundamentally upgraded in terms of roofing, insulation, eco based heating & hot water, disability access & services, internal storage, and WC provisions.

o The main ‘Clubroom’ / Public Area will be increased to allow tables & seating for up to 42 people, accessed via 2 x 3 panel bi-fold double glazed doors.

o WC provision will be increased from 3 to 7 units (3 external and 4 internal) of which 3 will be suitable for disabled (1 external and 2 internal).

o Provision of a 30m2 space for a Parish Council office is also included.
