Improvement works to pitches and car parking areas

Chapel Gate hockey pitch

Work is starting on a range of improvements to the hockey pitches, floodlights and car parking areas at Chapel Gate.  

The works will replace one of the astroturf hockey pitches and floodlights for both pitches, as well as the floodlights on the main rugby pitch.  

A new hockey warm up area and pedestrian circulation areas will also be created, and areas of the car park and entrance road will be resurfaced.  

Work will commence on 10th May and will mean the following pitches are unavailable:  

  • Both hockey pitches 
  • Football 1 & 2 
  • Rugby 1 & the utility area 
  • Football 3, 4 & 5 will be restricted to training only midweek and matches at the weekend due to proximity to the works 

This project will run throughout the summer months and the pitches should be operational by the middle of August.
