The Pavilion

Coronavirus update.  The pavilion is back in use with special measures to protect users from catching the Coronavirus.  The main room only is available and that includes the accessible toilet and the kitchen which lead off the main room.  The changing rooms are not in use.  Therefore, the venue is suitable for small groups of up to about 10 who can maintain social distancing.   A full range of hygiene and sanitising materials are provided for hirers.

The Pavilion is used all year round for Art Group and coffee mornings .  It has become a favourite venue for children’s parties and other celebrations.  Click Pavilion Bookings 2020.21 to view bookings for the next six months (updated 21 August ’20).  See further down for how to book.

The Pavilion and Sports Field are used throughout the summer for cricket and the fixtures are shown on the bookings list as soon as they are released by the Ashburnham Cricket Club.

The pavilion is owned by the parish council and the ground is leased from the Ashburnham Estate for a peppercorn rent.  The parish council maintains the building and its immediate surround and boundaries, but the cricket club maintain the outfield and the all important wicket.
