Bath City have recently announced that their home, Twerton Park, is to get a redevelopment as well as the nearby high street.
Plans for not just the ground which the National League South side have played at since 1932 but the area includes “new and improved facilities to Twerton including a new community hub, a gym, an all-weather 3G pitch and a new grandstand”.
John Reynolds, the club’s director said, as quoted by Somerset Live: “This isn’t about what we’re going to achieve in the next two to three years, it’s about what we’ll be doing for the next forty to fifty years.
“I love the people here, and what better than to have a community club in Twerton?
“The new 3G pitch will give opportunities for the younger kids to have somewhere new to play, and it’ll give opportunities for summer camps. Let’s get the kids off the streets.
“I’m convinced that children will come here, their parents will come along and they’ll be back. We’ll get our local atmosphere like it used to be, and businesses will benefit because people will be using the pitch 6/7 days a week.”
The club will be holding two drop-in sessions for fans to views and have their say on the plans, they will be…
– Wednesday 20th February, from 2pm to 8pm 115a High Street, Twerton, BA2 1DB.
– Saturday 23rd February, from 12pm to 3pm (before kick-off at the home game with Slough Town) in Charlie’s Bar at Twerton Park.
