The Go Underhill project has been many years in the planning – it started originally as “Underhill 2000” – and it will be some years before the whole project reaches fruition.
The final project will not only significantly upgrade all the sports facilities at Underhill but will also provide a Community Hub incorporating meeting rooms for use by a range of local community groups, multi-purpose spaces for classes such as art, dance and yoga, and a function room and social areas for the sports clubs.
It has now reached a point where work can be started on Phase 1. This Phase will develop new, state-of-the art changing rooms and with potential for an all-weather pitch for use by sports teams and casual players of all ages. MCC is providing vital financial support which will enable Mumbles Community Association (MCA) to attract grant funding from a variety of different sources to begin this work. MCC will continue to offer advice and support to MCA as the project progresses.
Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and play equipment for Underhill
MCC is looking into installing a MUGA backboard and basketball area, having taken advice from Basketball Wales on the most suitable type of facility and planning to provide £5000 worth of new play equipment for the children’s play area.
