Abbey Rec. Pavilion

The new pavilion was officially opened on Saturday 29th October 2011 by Stephen Hammond – Wimbledon MP. A large number of local residents and their families, Councillors, Council Officers, Police SNT and Funds Representatives attended the ceremony. The opening was reported as a news item in the WimbledonSW19 and Wimbledon Guardian while Merton Council issued a Press Release.

The new pavilion, which replaced the old one, was built at a total cost of £360,000. WERA raised a sum of £250,000 (i.e. £150,000 from London Marathon Fund, £100,000 from Viridor Credits) and Merton Council provided £110,000 to complete and manage the project.
