Henry Boot turns Trust’s dreams into reality – 06/09/13


Henry Boot Construction has given sport in the Derbyshire village of Codnor a huge boost by completing work on a new pavilion.

The Codnor Sports Pavilion on Goose Lane features changing rooms for two separate teams and two referees plus a large community room boasting a kitchen and serving area.

Work on the pavilion, which was substantially funded by the Football Association and conforms to FA specifications, began in January 2013 and was finished three weeks earlier than planned under the supervision of Site manager Jonathan Fassihi.

Built where the village’s miners’ welfare centre once stood, it represents a dream come true for the Codnor Sports Charitable Trust which was formed in 2011 with the specific aim of making the pavilion a reality.

“It has been a privilege to work on a project like this, one that will benefit the local community for generations to come by acting as a focal point particularly for grassroots youth football and cricket. The Codnor Sports Charitable Trust has worked tirelessly to get this project off the ground. They deserve so much praise. To turn their vision into reality has been immensely fulfilling.”
