Dream could become a reality

At Swindon Town Football in The Community Charitable Trust, it has been a five-year process of us trying to attain our own sporting facility and community club house hub. We have been working in partnership with Swindon Borough Council over the past eighteen months to make this dream come true. We have had many meetings and lots of feasibility work has been completed over the eighteen-month period where we have focused on us having a full-size 3G pitch, with a sporting club house area overlooking the 3G pitch.

This wonderful concept is being earmarked for The County Ground extension area with us delivering in partnership with Swindon Borough Council and Swindon Harriers Athletics Club. As a Community Trust we are extremely excited at the prospect of having a community facility which will not only benefit us as an organisation, but also enhance the sporting and social opportunities for thousands of people within the Borough of Swindon and the surrounding area.

Jon Holloway, Head of Trust, comments: “This has been a working lifelong ambition for Clive and myself to build a facility that the Community Trust and the Borough of Swindon can be extremely proud of. We have a long way to go but feel we have made significant steps towards achieving our goal.”

Wednesday 15th March is a pivotal date for this process to continue to gain momentum where there will be a public consultation in the Legends Lounge bar here at Swindon Town Football Club. This consultation from 3:30pm to 7:30pm will give us an opportunity to show the public of Swindon the full implementation of the plans for this new exciting facility and gather feedback. We look forward to seeing you there.
