Maria Miller MP hears about plans for new pavilion at Mays Bounty Cricket Ground

Basingstoke MP Maria Miller called in at Basingstoke Sports and Social Club (BSSC) at the Mays Bounty Cricket Ground for an update on the plans to replace the old pavilion with an exciting new building.
 
Maria met Steve Rayner, Chairman of BSSC, Bill Fergie from the BSSC Board, and architects Rob Joyce and Alex Talbot, from Basingstoke based architects Ayre Chamberlain Gaunt. An application for planning permission for the new pavilion has recently been submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
 
Maria said: “I was very interested to see the architects’ plans for the new pavilion, and it would be fantastic to have an iconic building like this in the centre of town. The building would also provide new facilities, including community space and much needed female changing facilities, enabling more girls and women to participate in sport at this location.”
 
“The Chairman of the BSSC and his Board are working hard to get the funding for the building in place, with national sporting bodies and other organisations expressing interest, and I wish them well with this.”
