The Football Foundation has granted £1 million towards a Thamesmead project. Sporting Club Thamesmead, which is being developed by Trust Thamesmead and its partners, will provide a range of sporting activities, social and community facilities, as well as improving the enjoyment of being involved with Thamesmead Town Football Club – whether simply watching the games, playing or coaching.
The new £4.2 million facility, which is being built by Haymills Construction, will provide an iconic community sports pavilion with changing facilities, indoor activity rooms and social facilities available to all residents of Thamesmead.
The Club building and the layout of the outdoor facilities have been designed to reinforce the open nature of the site from a visitors’ perspective and minimise the impact of the building on the land with the design philosophy being that where possible the building should ‘touch this earth lightly’, creating minimal impact and allowing the building to be appreciated as part of and not simply placed on the land.
