Works to improve the facilities at Jubilee Park (St Christopher’s) in Humberston will start on Monday 15 March.

The project will see underground land drainage installed under the pitches and the level of the land will be altered to help the three pitches drain naturally after periods of wet weather.

Once these works are completed, the areas will need to be re-seeded and the grass allowed to grow, undisturbed, in readiness for the start of the football season at the end of the summer.

Improvement and refurbishment works will also be carried out to the changing rooms in the main building and the car park.

The work will take approximately eight weeks to complete, weather permitting. During this time, the area where work will take place will be inaccessible to the public for safety reasons. The site changing rooms will also be closed during this time.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “The football pitches currently have issues with inadequate drainage which damages and floods the pitches, so games often have to be called off during the football season.

“Once completed, the quality of the park will be improved and the facilities will be able to be enjoyed by families throughout the year, whatever the weather.”
