Built in the 1970s, the Sports Pavilion building is a well-used community amenity that overlooks the south playing field (Queen Elizabeth II Field) and is easily accessible from the village bypass. It's a firm favourite for children's parties and takes a role in Eynsham Carnival in July, as well as being a headquarters for some of the sports teams in the village.
The building is now on the cusp of a new era. Rather than a complex refurbishment, we have secured planning permission for a re-build of this local icon. The new Pavilion will be a two-storey building with function space for up to 270 people. It will contain improved changing facilities and a range of social spaces, including large and small halls, a kitchen and a balcony area for watching outdoor activities in comfort.
Parking for 20 cars with separate overflow car park opposite
Tables and chairs provided
Kitchen with cooker, refrigerator, kettles, microwave oven and urn
Two toilets (including one disabled).
Pavilion Re-build Project
The Parish Council started its Pavilion Re-build Project in January 2019 as the current structure is nearing the end of its life.
Following a number of revisions and a pre-planning application to West Oxfordshire District Council, full planning permission has now been granted by WODC (July 2021). A link to the planning application can be found here. The Council is now working on a business plan and will look to start fundraising to support the costs of the re-build of a much-loved community asset.
