The donation was made when CTC’s owner, a nearby resident, heard how locals had joined together to improve the community centre’s out-dated facilities. It’s part of £195k of investment to improve facilities that Seaview Football Club share with the local fitness groups, Girl Guides, Brownie and Rainbow groups.
The project is the result of tireless work by the Seagrove Pavilion Trust, led by Kevin Berry, who wanted facilities the local community can be proud of. “The two villages of Seaview and Nettlestone are located on either side of the sports grounds,” said Kevin. “The new facilities will unite the communities.”
As a result of the work Seaview Football Club now boasts a new club and function room, along with two new changing rooms, showers and a kitchen. They enjoyed a good start to their Harwood’s Vauxhall Division Two campaign, beating Yarmouth & Calbourne by four goals to nil.
CTC General Manager Cliff Arnold was pleased to be involved with the project. “The players at Seaview FC will be able to enjoy a nice warm environment in the clubhouse and, after 90 minutes spent giving their all on the pitch, they can relax with a decent hot shower.”
