Lockey Park Changing Rooms

The Wideopen Juniors Lockey Park development has taken a long time to achieve. However, now that it is in regular use, it has been well worth the wait. The first set of photographs below show the old tin huts that Wideopen had as changing rooms - no electricity or water! The second set of photographs show the building as it was going up.

Why do we need new changing rooms?
The progress of the new building.

More photographs from the builders can be found HERE. On the day of the keys being handed over, there was lots to do to get the building ready and plenty of hands to help (even if some seemed to be taking it apart first!)

Finally, there was the official opening on Wednesday 5th September 2007. Guests of Honour were John Harrison, Mayor of North Tyneside and Peter Beardsley, ex-Newcastle and England player.
