The pavilion in the recreation ground was built by village residents and used for many years by the Ickford football team. Unfortunately, after the football club ceased to exist, the pavilion started to deteriorate. With no income coming in to pay for maintenance and utilities, the Parish Council were faced with the challenge of how to make the pavilion ‘earn its keep’ whilst providing a facility that the whole community could enjoy.
In December 2017 we were awarded with a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund to refurbish the pavilion into a community space, and a further £1000 grant from Aylesbury Vale District Council’s New Homes Bonus Micro Grant Fund to purchase furniture and crockery.
The pavilion is now ready for action and can be hired by village residents, groups and institutions for small meetings and community events. To hire the pavilion please call Louise on 01844 339613, or email email@example.com .
