The grand opening of Bath Lane Pavilion took place on Saturday 30th May, following a £500,000 refurbishment and extension of the building funded by the Fareham Borough Council.
All of the improvements are in keeping with the original character of the changing rooms which are sited in the Town Quay Conservation area. As well as providing improved facilities for the local cricket community, the project improves the overall appearance of the recreation ground for all users.
Cllr Sue Bell, Executive Member for Leisure and Community says, "It's great that these facilities have been refurbished in keeping with the original design, and that they will continue to benefit local cricket clubs for another 100 years."
Cricket was first played at Bath Lane in 1887 and original changing rooms were constructed circa 1904.
