The council is working with the Football Foundation on proposals to install a brand new 9v9 3G pitch (a third-generation synthetic surface consisting of synthetic turf, sand infill and performance infill) which will sit to the south of the running track and be a separate area available for use by community organisations, other football and sports clubs, schools and other groups.
The all-day event opens from 9am, with the new plans on display from 9am-2pm and a presentation and Q&A session starting at 9.15am in the Clubhouse. Representatives from Great Yarmouth Borough Council, the football club and consultants Tim Wall Leisure will be on hand to answer questions.
Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic, explore all areas of the recreation ground and enjoy the fun football skills activities on offer.
Andy Grant, chairman of the council’s Housing and Neighbourhoods Committee, said: “The Wellesley Recreation Ground is an important historic and recreational asset of Great Yarmouth and has great untapped potential.This engagement event, and the accompanying survey, is a great opportunity for local people and stakeholders to have their say on the future of the site.”
Residents and stakeholders can share their views and insight to help develop the council’s exciting new proposals for the site via the online survey which is open until August 21, 2021 at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/
