Pavilion renovation work begins

6 days ago By Dan Hough

TCC's home gets the once over

“Renovating the pavilion is a big undertaking, but we're hopeful the end product will be very much worth the inconvenience we'll experience over the next few weeks” Jon Varney

The bright-eyed and bushy-tailed amongst you will have noticed that scaffolding has appeared around the pavilion on Twickenham Green. The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames (LBRuT) is undertaking renovation work.

Whilst it may all look rather drastic, this is part and parcel of keeping public buildings in good working order. LBRuT are ensuring that all of the pavilion's exterior is in good working shape moving forward. That involves everything form re-doing the guttering to ensuring that the pavilion remains structurally sound.

Carry on as normal
The work will take a number of weeks and will be followed later in the summer by further renovations inside the pavilion. More on those in due course.

The long and short of this is that the pavilion is still very much useable and we won't have any of our playing activities curtailed. We will, however, have to do things slightly differently on match days. For example, the front door of the pavilion will be out of commission and the shutters will also be closed over the next couple of weeks. Everyone can continue to gain access to the pavilion via the side door (the one players use to go to the changing rooms).

The interior itself may be rather murky for a time, but it is absolutely useable. As noted above, all of the current work concerns the exterior. We can still use the kitchen, the toilets, the bar and the changing rooms. The only thing that will change is that (pretty obviously) we can't use the veranda.

We're obviously sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause, but we hope you agree that having a pavilion that looks the part is really very important. As ever, any questions do just ping Disco or Reg a line.
