Enhancing communitiesVolunteers from the team spent 'Give and Gain' day helping allotment holders at Cherry Orchard build new raised beds and a shelter for older and disabled people.
The main stand was constructed in a live environment, following the phase one handover of pitch and changing rooms – this meant that a full safe and secure shutdown had to happen early on every home match day to ensure the smooth and safe running of the event.
The class base refurbishment and sports hall conversion into a dance studio were undertaken in a live school – works had to be carefully coordinated around the academic calendar to ensure teaching and exam periods remained unaffected.
“I’ve been in regeneration for years, so to have this now is amazing! Seeing the quality of this facility I’m so excited about the other facilities going forward. It’s been really, really positive. The whole team have been excellent. The site was very safe and secure and they would always shut the site so it was ready for the game. Morgan Sindall Construction would always be at the end of the telephone on match days to sort any issues and that was great. I can’t think of any negatives!”Alison Hibbert
