Time for change at hockey club’s pitch

Spalding Hockey Club will now have the luxury of changing rooms and a clubhouse when they play their home games at Glen Park, Surfleet.

Permission to renovate and change the use of a derelict building at Station Road, Surfleet was granted unanimously by councillors.

Applicant Tonic Health proposed to transform the property from what is currently a gallery and art studio into changing rooms with showers and toilet facilities and an independent kitchen and cafe area.

The building currently has parking spaces in front, which would be retained, but the back of the studio would be demolished and rebuilt to be flush with the rest of the building and slightly extended outwards.

The existing flat roof is proposed to be altered to a pitched roof.

Coun Harry Drury said: “It tidies up a derelict site in the village. The organisation is known for their work in the community. It would be great for them to have that extra facility.

In the conditions, it proposed that the clubhouse would only be allowed to be hired out until 6pm, but it was agreed that this may be revisited in the future.

The opening hours are likely to 10am to 3pm in the winter, 10am-5pm in the summer and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays during the season.
