New All Weather Pitch

Work is underway on installing a new all-weather pitch and improved floodlighting at a popular community centre in Townhill.

Swansea Council has committed to investing up to £300,000 in the facility at the Phoenix Centre.

The old pitch was laid around 20 years ago and was well used by the community including local sporting clubs and school teams so it is now in need of replacing.

The council is funding a replacement surface, new fencing, netting and energy efficient state-of-the-art LED floodlighting from its Swansea Economic Recovery Fund.

Cabinet Member for Investment, Regeneration and Tourism, Robert Francis-Davies, said: “I’m really pleased that we have been able to start work on this sports facility which I know is greatly valued by the community.

“Sport has huge physical, mental health and general wellbeing benefits and that is why Swansea Council does all it can to provide modern and accessible facilities for all.

“This is just the latest all-weather pitch we have funded or provided support towards in recent years and they can now be found at Penyrheol, Morriston, Pentrehafod, Gowerton, Bishopston, Elba Sports Complex and at Dylan Thomas Community School.”

Work is expected to take around six weeks to complete and is being carried out by Blakedown Sport and Play.

The old pitch will be recycled by a company working in the golf industry.

The Phoenix Centre is a flagship community enterprise centre run and managed by Hill Community Development Trust.

Manager Leanne Dower said: “The resurfacing of the pitch will make a huge difference locally. The pitch is still very well used and this will give us the opportunity to continue to work closely with local schools and clubs. Having a new facility will be a great boost for our area.”
