22 January 2021: Construction of the new club house is now well under way with the floor plan laid out and external timber frame construction moving ahead quickly. We hope to have the frame and roof complete by March 2021 and will issue more photos of progress over the coming weeks.

20 December 2020:  Groundworks for the new clubhouse are now complete, the main stand has been moved to its new location. The main frame timbers have been delivered for build work to commence in the New Year. We will post some photos of progress early in the New Year once the frame starts to take shape.

24 October 2020: The piling work around the ground continued on schedule this week and is now around 50% complete. The frame for concrete slab is under construction and drainage works will be starting w/c 26 October.  

12 October 2020: The latest update from the Long Melford Community Sports Trust:  

After all the rain we’ve decided to build the new clubhouse on stilts! 

Just joking...these piles will be sunk into the ground and filled with concrete to support the floor slab.

We’re all excited that after nearly five years of planning work is finally underway.  

02 October 2020:  Due to some COVID relating restrictions the ground works for the new build have incurred a 3 week delay, however work carries on behind the scenes in readiness for the main build works to commence. 

Ground piling is now due to start w/e 17th October with the floor slab being laid immediately after this. Once the slab has been laid we will update everyone with pictures of progress. 

In the meantime if you wish to be involved either with the build itself or to work with us as a volunteer please get in touch.

30 August 2020:  There have been some questions asked as to who is building the new clubhouse. 

In order to obtain the best value and bring the construction within the budget available, works packages are being awarded to individual subcontractors, with KHA Consulting Ltd acting as our construction manager / Principal contractor, co-ordinating the work and arranging materials, plant etc. 

Works on the piling and floor slab are being carried out by GM Foundations and are due to start in 2 weeks time. 

Anyone interested in being involved should contact Kevin Hurley at KHA Consulting Ltd on 07813 085464 or [email protected]

21 August 2020: It's the end of an era as demolition of part of the old clubhouse begins.

The bar and changing rooms will continue to operate until the new clubhouse is up and running next Spring.

As of this weekend Stoneylands becomes a construction site, so please be extra careful when visiting the ground.

14 August 2020:  All pre construction works are now complete and demolition of part of the current clubhouse will commence from August 24th, with the first ground works for the new building due to start w/c September 7th.

If you are visiting the ground from August 24th there will be some parking restrictions in place as the build site will be fenced off (we will keep you updated accordingly).

The current timescale indicates completion in early Spring 2021, so if you would like to be part of this exciting new building through either sponsorship or donation however big or small, please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your continued support for Long Melford FC, LMFC Colts & Fillies and the wider community.
