Posted on April 07, 2009 by Teresa Pearce

To be build of the site of Thamesmead Town FC. The new facility will provide a cutting edge designed sports pavilion plus indoor activity rooms with social facilities for the use of all residents of Thamesmead.

There will also be all year round floodlit  pitch , and a floodlit Multi Use Games Area available.

The scheme also features enhanced parking and access to the site, as well as improved spectator facilities for supporters and members of Thamesmead Town FC.

Vic Grimes, Trust Thamesmead’s Chair, commented: “I’m very pleased that we now have all the funding in place and work is to start on a project which will provide a step change in sports provision in Thamesmead.

“None of this would’ve been possible without the solid support we have received from Bexley Council’s Members and Officers during the past four years.”


Although Bexley Council is currently Tory controlled it is clear that the work begun by the Labour councillors prior to 2006 election put this project on the road.
