A disused building in Attleborough has been revitalised for the benefit of the community, following the completion of a refurbishment project by a local housebuilder.

A ribbon cutting took place for the Nissen hut, located in the Attleborough Town Football Club grounds off Station Road, on August 19, after it received a brand new disabled access ramp and fresh paintwork, all courtesy of Taylor Wimpey, the company behind the in-progress Grosvenor Park housing development in London Road.

It will be used alternately by the club as extra changing rooms and by local community groups for their own purposes.

Steve Fulcher, senior site manager at the Grosvenor Park development, said: “The Nissen hut had been unused for years, mainly because there was a big drop from the door of the hut to the ground, but it was in pretty good shape inside. It’s great to see it brought back into use for the local community.

“We’re proud of our involvement with the people of Attleborough, and we look forwarding to developing this as the community at Grosvenor Park continues to take shape.”

Attleborough town councillor Karen Pettitt added: “I am so pleased to be able to see this refurbishment project through to completion.”
