St Edmunds School

New astro and 3G pitch completed in summer holidays

Velocity Sports Ltd recently carried out the construction of  a 3/4 size sand dressed hockey pitch and 3G 5 aside area, transforming the existing concrete playground into a high quality multi sports area.

The scope of the works formed a complete design and build package involving a full scale construction of the two new areas inclusive of drainage system, engineered base, shockpad and artificial grass surface installation, perimeter fencing and sports equipment assembly plus the associated hard and soft landscaping.

The project was handed over for the start of new school term and the feedback to date from the school's pupils has been extremely positive.

Headteacher Simon Graham commented: St Edmundís is now the 'place to be' for Sport, something that many years ago only seemed a distant dream. Our new Multi-Games facility will enable even more types of sport to take place at St Edmundís.

The new ASTRO pitch is something that has enhanced not only break and lesson time, but the overall atmosphere and ethos of the school.
