Pavilion Opening 29th October 2010

On the 29th of August 2010, we were proud to announce the Grand Opening of Filwood Fields Pavilion. Although the Pavilion was built a couple of years ago we have only just appointed local trustees to manage the site. These trustees have fantastic plans for the site in the future and understand the needs and demands of the local residents. Filwood Fields has been the location for thousands of players over the years and this facility was much needed.

The Right Hon Dawn Primarolo MP and Bristol’s Lord Mayor Colin Smith (Cllr) announced the opening by cutting the ribbon. The actual day was a festival of football, with football coaching, specialist goal keeping sessions, Broadwalk’s New Ability FC team, the young leaders from the Great Grass Eden Project, Bristol City FC and a wealth of young people. For the last 2 years the site has held free school holiday football sessions for the local young people and its popularity has been immense.

The plan for the Pavilion is to be the central venue for football activity for all, regardless of age or ability and the new management team are keen to get this wonderful community asset up and running to its potential.
