TUESDAY will witness the first visible signs of Home Park’s eagerly awaited transformation.
With the Argyle Academy and Argyle Community Trust already happily ensconced at the Pilgrims’ temporary Plumer House home in Crownhill – and the rest of the club staff set to follow shortly – the focus is now turning towards the exciting renovation of the Mayflower grandstand and associated Home Park developments.
In preparation for that work, the Green Taverners are relocating from their Green Taverners’ Suite marquee, home of many a memorable Fans’ Fest.
They are moving from behind the club offices to the other end of the Higher Home Park car-park, opposite the Life Centre.
The old Pilgrim Centre, previously occupied by the Community Trust, will be recommissioned as a new temporary supporters’ bar while the permanent replacement for the Green Taverners’ Suite is constructed on the site of the Old Far Post Club in time for next season.
On Tuesday, a giant crane will lift the Pilgrim Centre from its current location and transport it to its new position.
The move will take place, in stages, from early morning and will cause more than a little disruption to normal Home Park operations.
Parking at the ground will be severely limited and access to the Ticket Office and Superstore may be affected.
Supporters who need to come to Home Park are encouraged to park elsewhere or use alternative transport. Everyone coming to the ground will be marshalled.
