It's been a long time,
nearly 3 years,since the upgrading of the Junior Changing Room Block,
in the Squash Court Building, was first unveiled
but despite many blips and hurdles to overcome along the way,
work has now been completed.
During the early part of March, the Cricket club signed the necessary legal documentation
to allow the Changing Room Development to progress.
A major Grant from Newport City Council supported by ENTRUST, and Cricket Wales
led to the Cricket club taking on the old Squash Court Building
and a complete refurbishment of the Changing Room Block.
Before (Pre March 2015)
5 Changing Rooms not fit for purpose, with no shower facilities that worked.
A leaking Roof
An antiquated Boiler System
After (May 21st, 2015)
5 Fully decorated Changing Rooms with working showers plus Umpire's Room
A new roof
A new boiler system
Work began in late March 2015, and was completed on Friday, May 22nd.
As you can see from the pictures below the transformation has been remarkable.
We now havestate of the art changing facilities
which will more than cater for our many Junior Teams and visitors,
both male and female.
