The Sports and Pavilion Committee is responsible for the running of the Pavilion, its facilities, bookings to support local groups and clubs and the grounds surrounding the Pavilion and the Sports Field. The Starcross Parish Council also supports the Community Food Larder which is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9.0am until 11.0am in the Pavilion and run by Westbank Volunteers.
Since February this year the Parish Council have taken on the management of the Pavilion Cafe, which is open every Thursday from 11.0am until 1.0pm. This is proving to be a friendly Community Hub where residents and visitors can meet up for light refreshments and a chat.
The Post Office which is also based each Thursday in the Peacock Cookson Room in the Pavilion is open from 11.30 am until 1.30pm. The SPC are also pleased to support the ‘Breakfast Club’ run by Westbank every Tuesday morning in the Pavilion.
The Sports Field has now certainly been put on the map with football matches or practices for all ages from under 7yrs to adults every weekend and families and friends supporting the players every time. Over 140 girls and boys now play football in Starcross
It has always been the SPC’s intention to offer as many facilities as possible at the Pavilion and are now planning to renovate the West facing patio area and also erect a Pergola which will be fitted to the West side over the double doors . This will not only provide a covered viewing platform but also offer the opportunity for music events in the summer to be held under cover.
The Pavilion which provides baby changing and disabled facilities continues to be available for hire to private parties, corporate meetings and FREE USE for, groups and clubs in the Meeting Room.
