Sarah Dines, MP for Derbyshire Dales visited the old pavilion and met with some of the volunteers working together to bring the new pavilion to Ashbourne.
Loving our display in the old Dorothy Perkins shop. Now you can see, learn, help and be part of the project. Thank you to all those who helped us present the project to a wider audience.
17 August 2019 – 128th Ashbourne Show
Another successful event showcasing our project to both local residents and visitors at the 128th Ashbourne Show.
After the awful weather the night before the show, our poor gazebo suffered from the weight of the heavy rain and broke, but thanks to great teamwork and effort from the Partnership members, we managed to find two other gazebos, soaked up the mud with a bit of straw and proudly showcased our project at the show.
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand it was great to see significant and positive community interest and support in the project.
Many won some great prizes from our tombola and others bought some yummy homemade cakes and others contributed to our very popular Sponsor a Brick campaign, and we are delighted that the local community helped raise another £525 towards the project - thank you.
All in all, a great day and the sun came out - perfect.

Just shows how much fun you can have when you put up a gazebo in the pouring rain getting ready for our stand at Ashbourne Show...big thanks to those who helped. Just hope it's still there in the morning! Don't forget your wellies - its a bit muddy. But you will be rewarded with a fab tombola and some really yummy eats.

17 June 2019 - National Volunteer Week
As part of National Volunteer Week, we too want to say a BIG thank you. Here is a pic of just some of our volunteers following one of our regular meetings. They have all come together for one passion and that is to build a new sports and community memorial pavilion for Ashbourne.

As the project continues to progress, we are also looking back at the history of the Pavilion.
Here is an image of the players from the West Germany's 1966 World Cup squad relaxing in from of the Pavilion with supporters. The team trained on the grounds at the Pavilion for 18 days in July 1966 before the World Cup.
Another excellent article about the project in the Ashbourne News Telegraph.
