Lansdowne has a 330 square meter astroturf pitch. It's the favourite facility of the young people who use the centre, and the one most in need of repair. We want to install a brand new 3G astroturf, hoardings, goals, floodlights & an overhead net (to save our footballs when we have an overexcited player... that happens a lot!) The space will be used year round by young people, giving them a safe & welcoming place to spend their afternoons, weekends and school holidays. It will be the home & training ground of the Lansdowne U12, U16 and U19 football teams, & it will accommodate other sports, including netball, cage cricket, tennis and badminton. We'll also make the pitch available to rent at affordable rates to local groups, putting Lansdowne at the heart of the community in Stockwell. We have the support of the local council but have not yet had confirmation on whether we need planning permission to make changes to the pitch. No pledges will be taken unless this is attained.

What we'll deliver:

  • Remove the existing astroturf surface, foundation and goals.
  • Install a new base layer with improved drainage.
  • Lay a new, 3G astroturf surface over the entire space
  • Refurbish floodlight system
  • Install bounce boards, goals and and overhead net

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great idea because Lansdowne is one of the few remaining community spaces in Stockwell. Lansdowne is supported by the the London Borough of Lambeth and run by an innovative community organisation (Enterprise LDN) which is committed to helping local youngsters to be healthy, stay safe, do well in school and to find meaningful pathways to success in life. It's also a great idea because this is what local young people who use the centre want more than anything! And if we are able to deliver this project, more young people will come to the centre to make friends and have fun. With this new facility, Lansdowne will become the heart of the community and a focal point for local people in Stockwell.

Steps to get it done:

  • Commence fundraising through Spacehive
  • Secure quotes from at least 3 contractors
  • Promote fundraising campaign with local people
  • Run fundraising event at Lansdowne during Summer 2017
  • Reach fundraising goal of £36,500k
  • Choose a contractor and sign contract for works
  • Commence works - Autumn 2017
  • Complete works and arrange launch party / tournament
