Upz & Downz
A centre in Tonbridge where young adults with learning disabilities can learn skills to give them opportunities in life was granted planning permission by Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council in March 2020.
Based in the south east corner of Tonbridge Angels FC’s Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium, the Upz and Downz 3300 sq. ft building will include a workshop, kitchen, cafe open to the public, and Angels Club Shop.
Bernard Chick of Upz and Downz said: “The obtaining of planning permission is a huge step forward and I would like to thank everyone who has helped us get to this stage.”
Dave Netherstreet, Chairman of Tonbridge Angels added: “The new building will enhance a rather run-down area of our stadium and also gives us the addition of a new club shop and two offices. Congratulations to Bernard and Upz and Downz.”
Construction is hoped to be completed by Summer 2021.
