The focus of the event is to showcase Pannal Ash Junior Football Club’s new pavilion, the building of which commenced in January this year, 40 years since the club’s foundation. Once completed, the pavilion will be a shared space, available for the community to use. The event’s organisers are keen to bring the community together on the day both to celebrate this facility and invite them to become involved in the future.
Pannal Ash FC Chairman and Almsford Community Fun Day committee member, Chris McVey, explained:
Once the pavilion is completed, it will be available to the whole community and we are always looking for people who might be interested in getting involved. Whether you are from the residents’ association, a local group or charity or a member of the club, we would like to invite you to our Fun Day with your ideas on how this amazing resource can be used to best effect to bring the community together.
Thanks to an Awards for All grant, entry to the event and many of the attractions, including the live music, will be free of charge.
