Kings Down Pavilion
About Kings Down Pavilion
Pavilion for parish now open
The brand new community pavilion on Kings Drive opened its doors to local residents for the first time on Saturday 8th November 2014 with fun features for all the family and the chance to have their say in how it will be used.
The Pavilion was handed over by developers, Hallam Land to Sedgemoor District Council on 15th October 2014. It is sited next to the new primary school that opened for its first pupils on 2nd September. The Pavilion hall and kitchen are equipped and ready for use. The Pavilion provides a village hall space for the whole parish (and beyond) and changing rooms for the new sports pitches surrounding it.
This brand new, purpose-built pavilion has a main hall 12 metres by 8 metres – big enough for meetings of 100 or more people seated or 80 or more at tables. There is a welcoming reception area, a car park and the kitchen area has a service hatch to the hall.
The hall looks out through French windows onto playing fields and is available for parties, exhibitions, health and fitness classes, sales events, meetings, lectures and social events. To make a booking please use the booking form or contact the Clerk.
Also in the building, but with separate access are state-of-the-art changing facilities for four teams (e.g. of footballers) and their officials.
You can view a fixture list so you can, perhaps, come and support your team.
The Pavilion is fully accessible for wheelchair users. It is being run by experienced professionals and will soon provide all modern facilities such as Wi-Fi web access, projector and screen.
Road access from Bridgwater Bath Road, Bristol Road and the M5 via J23 is excellent and it is not far from Bridgwater railway and bus stations; the area is served by several bus services.
