Firstly many thanks to all those that helped out last Thursday when the pavilion was struck by lightening and burnt down. Thank goodness nobody was injured and the immediate residents were taken to safety while the fire raged and the emergency services did their bit to save the area surrounding the pavilion.

The PC owned the pavilion and have now met with the insurers and the site is due to be cleared on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st August.

They are also working closely with Barton Stacey Football Club and a storage unit  along with 2 portaloos will shortly be placed on the recreation ground for the storage of the football equipment for this season.

It will take some time to replace the pavilion but a working party has been set up to look at all the options.  Please be assured that you will be kept in the picture as the process develops.

Many thanks for your patience and understanding
