We have been fortunate enough to land an exciting new project at the historic Worcester sports ground.
A new pavilion is being built on the Cinderella sports ground and will have a plain ‘box’ construction – a single storey with a covered terrace.
These infamous grounds were the first home to Worcestershire County Cricket Club and and was the sports and social ground for Kay’s employees until the business closed in 2007.
The Cinderella Sports Ground on Bransford Road, Worcester is a site of special historic significance for Worcester.
It was the original home ground for Worcestershire County Cricket Club, now based at New Road, and the legendary W.G.Grace played there for the County as a 20 year old in 1870 with the first Australian touring side playing there just a couple of years later.
Once the “works ground” for the city’s Cinderella shoe factory, more recently it was the site of the sports and social club of Kays Catalogues, offering cricket and football and the quality of the pitches was renowned on the local sporting scene.
After Kays closed down in 2007, a residential development began on the wider site, with planning permission being granted that same year.
The Cinderella Ground retained status as sports pitches and in 2015 the City Council took up an option with Arndale, the developers, and entered into a 25 year lease for the ground, with the intention of renovating the site in conjunction with the Heart of Worcestershire College.
The plans are to relocate the existing pavilion, which is old and dilapidated, to Avoncroft Museum and construct a modern, fit for purpose building in its place.
That is where we come in.
With refurbishment now underway, we have been asked to provide scaffolding for the construction of the new Cinderella Pavilion.
