SHSC Changing Rooms

Changing Room Plan

We are delighted to be able to report that work will start on refurbishing and extending the Club changing rooms in January. It's seemed a long time since we were presented with the £50,000 cheque from Sport England Inspired Facilities, but planning permission, other approvals, detail design and the contractor bidding process took rather longer than we had anticipated.

The plans are attached. The extension will add substantial rooms onto both ladies and gents changing areas, increasing them by 170% and 70% respectively. This will make changing far more comfortable, reducing the need to squeeze past other people. The entrance areas will also be improved with just a single door and sight screen, so it's easier to carry our large bags into and out of the rooms.

Inevitably there will be some disruption whilst the work is being carried out, but the changing rooms will be kept usable throughout. Completion date for the work will depend to a large extent on the weather, but we hope to have the main structure and interior decorating complete by early April.

This is the largest alteration we've made to the clubhouse since it was built, and it will bring the changing rooms up to the exceptional standard of the wet and dry areas as part of our programme to continuously improve our facilities.
