Steve Hollick, one of the Technical Directors at Romsey based consulting civil and structural engineering company WFBA has met with Gideon Aymes to see the new Nomansland Community Club house and skate park now in operation after helping Gideon with the initial funding applications.
It took Gideon, as fundraising officer of the Nomansland Sports Association four years raising almost £500,000 for the community project. WFBA supported the charity by working speculatively from the start on the design for this highly sustainable club house. The use of natural lighting, solar power, automatic occupation sensors, heat recovery and a highly insulated construction will mean that the energy consumption of the building will not be a burden on the charity in the future.
The Nomansland Sports Association is now looking for local sponsorship so that it can complete and furnish the facilities used by local residents and schools. The new facilities have already led to the formation of an additional football team and skate park club which is also looking for sponsors.
“We are fundraising to purchase the furniture including changing room benches, storage cupboards, tables, fridge and freezer to support the club’s aim to involve young people aged between 5 and 16 in regular sport and outdoor activities,” said Gideon. “If we can raise enough, a new decking area outside the clubhouse would make it possible for football team supporters and parents to support these activities in comfort.”
