The Gossmore Recreation Ground changing rooms, which have been fully refurbished, were opened on Saturday, 11th March by Marlow’s Mayor Bob Johnson, Deputy Mayor Jocelyn Towns with Alan Turner and Bernard Carvell, Chairman and Secretary of the Marlow Association of Amateur Football Clubs (MAAFC) respectively.
The changing rooms, which consist of a pre-fabricated concrete shell, have been in place for around 40 years and little improvement work has been carried out in that time. The refurbishment works by Marlow Town Council and the MAAFC included renovation of the interior with additional improved facilities including new toilets and extra showers. The roof has been re-covered and the walls repainted.
MAAFC Chairman Alan Turner said: “ We are delighted with the refurbishment and can’t thank Marlow Town Council enough for their support and positive approach in ensuring the many users, young and old, now have a facility worthy of the name.”
Cllr Johnson said: “Gossmore Lane Recreation Ground is an invaluable open space within the town and caters for over 200 users of all ages and genders each weekend. It can now boast changing rooms to match its idyllic location. It’s a welcoming venue for the many visiting teams to the town as well as the hundreds of local users who now have a facility to be proud of.”
