Local company Honeybourne Facilities Group based in Boldmere, who are experts within the property care and management sector have joined forces with local school Bishop Vesey Grammar School to help restore the much loved sports pavilion that is visible from the main Lichfield to Birmingham cross city line.

The pavilion is an iconic building for the school built in 1938.  Over the years it has proved difficult to maintain due to significant cuts in Government funding, and now it has reached a point where it is need of some attention to restore it to its former glory.

A working party was formed with parent volunteers and they have been supported by Honeybourne Facilities Group whose Managing Director Doug Hunt was a former pupil at the school.  Honeybourne have undertaken the more technical tasks relating to mechanical and electrical work, and putting their quality stamp on the job in hand.

Graham Swindells Finance Director for Bishop Vesey commented “The school feels very privileged and humbled that one of our highly valued and reliable contractors, Honeybourne has stepped in to support the parents.  The support they have offered the school and the parents has been amazing and a fantastic example of the private sector being involved in community projects”.

The students, teachers and parents will yet again be able to enjoy the pavilion now it has undergone the refurbishment.
