Changing Room & Clubhouse Redevelopment Completed

posted 26 Oct 2016, 07:01 by Darren Barton   [ updated 3 Nov 2016, 01:35 ]

The redevelopment of the Burnham United changing rooms and clubhouse at Cassis Close is now complete.

The project, which cost a quarter of a million pounds, was financed by a major grant from Viridor Waste Management, some smaller grants from the local council and funds raised by the club.

The work was undertaken by local company Blue Swan Solutions.

The old changing room block, which was built in the 1960’s, was completely demolished and replaced with new changing facilities that meet FA regulations. The new facility has 4 changing rooms and 2 referees changing rooms, all with integrated showers and toilet facilities. There are also toilets for general use, a kit laundry room and storage areas.

The existing clubhouse was completely gutted and refurbished and now has full disabled access and facilities, a larger kitchen, new bar, a skittle alley and new furniture throughout.

The new and old parts of the building have all been re-roofed and the walls have been externally insulated to make the building warmer and more environmentally friendly.

The club would like to thank everyone involved in the refurbishment and rebuild and to thank Viridor and the local council for making the whole project possible. 

Shown below are some pictures which show the transition from the old to the new building.

Flag Bearing at Ashton Gate

posted 13 Nov 2009, 16:16 by Darren Barton   [ updated 30 Mar 2011, 03:26 ]

 
The under 8's had the honour of welcoming Bristol City on to the pitch at Ashton Gate to face Leeds United. Twelve of our players waved their flags as the City and Leeds teams ran on to the pitch. It was a tremendous atmosphere and a day to remember for everyone. After performing the guard of honour the burnham players and their parents all got to watch the match from the stands.
The day was a great success and our thanks go to Duncan for organising the day.
 
 
 
 
Here's a video of the team in action...
