Plans are being discussed to rejuvenate a village football pavilion that has fallen into disrepair.

John Anderson, vice-chair of Southminster Parish Council, said at the Parish Council meeting on June 16 that the pavilion is in a ‘terrible state’.

Currently used during the football season by Southminster St Leonards Football Club, Mr Anderson said the pavilion, on the King George V playing fields, needed a total overhaul.

It has a leaking roof, a broken floor and mould and damp throughout the current building.

Stuart Portman, 42, of Anchorage View, St Lawrence, has been club chairman for four years and managed the team for 15 years before that.

He said that the overhaul was overdue for the club, which was founded in 1889 and which the football club pay rent to the parish council to use.

He said: “We have been wanting the pavilion revamped for years.

“I would totally support refurbishment, I think a new multi-purpose building would get more use.”
