ECCLESFIELD CHANGING FACILITY

Ecclesfield Changing Facility is administered jointly by Eccleston Parish Council and Windle Parish Council.  Eccleston Parish Council own 70% of the facility and Windle Parish Council own 30%.

The facility is situated on Ecclesfield open space where there is a car park for users, which was a condition by St Helens Council attached to the planning permission for the changing facility.

The facility is maintained by a Caretaker who is responsible for security, cleaning and upkeep.  St Helens Council, who own the open space and leases it to Eccleston Parish Council for a yearly fee, maintain the grounds.  Contributions from the two Parish Councils and fees from the football teams fund the running of the changing facility.

The Committee meets at least 4 times a year to address problems and all user representatives are invited to attend and give their views.  At the present time the facility is used for football practice and weekly matches.  There are also basketball nets for the use of all residents.
