Go ahead given for new pavilion

Design for the new pavilion

The Friends of Greenhead Park and Greenhead Park Bowling Club are celebrating a big milestone towards securing a new base in the Park.  After much discussion, planning permission has now been granted for a modern timber pavilion to replace the now-demolished information hut and concrete bowling pavilion which were previously home to the Friends and bowlers.  The new structure will overlook the bowling greens, replacing the 1930’s timber pavilion which is past repair and has not been in use for many years.  Check out our Big Picture gallery for some dramatic photos of its recent demolition.
Full details of the planning application, including plans of the new pavilion, are available on the Kirklees Council website.
The council will cover the cost of the basic structure but the Friends and Bowling Club will need to raise funds for interior fittings.  We’d love to complete the building with a ‘green roof’ too – if we can find the money for this.
Any ideas about possible funding – or offers of cash!! – would be very welcome.
