Finally, work on the new Pavillion has begun with the foundation work beginning.
However, on day 1 of the works, what looks like to be a Roman Alter & Iron-Age house has been found on site.
This is going to cause a delay as Historic Scotland complete their research & recording of the find. Hopefully only a slight delay!
In the meantime, progress photos can be found on our website under the Gallery Tab, then 2010 Pavillion link.[Tuesday 30/03/2010] (Back To Top)
Work begins shortly on the new clubhouse with the foundation work starting before the end of March. The decor has been selected, site visits taken place and all plans are in place.
The Lewisvale project is the 5th of 5 being undertaken by East Lothian Council. Delays in other projects over the winter due to the weather means the expected completion date is now 14th June.
The club is sure it will be worth the wait.[Tuesday 02/03/2010] (Back To Top)

This week the club received the fantastic news that all plans for the new pavillion have been approved.
As Lewisvale Park is an ancient monumented site, permission was required from Historic Scotland to undertake the works at the park. This was formally received this week.
Funding for the build is being provided by East Lothian Council, who in turn received a £500000 grant from SportsScotland as part of 6 pavillion development/upgrade for the local area.
The plan is for the new pavillion to be open in the Spring/Summer of 2010 meaning the new facility will be in use for the 2010 season. This will be very much appreciated by both club members and opposition teams.
Musselburgh Cricket Club would like to thank East Lothian Council, in particular Eamon John, for their support and efforts to get this project approved.[Saturday 14/11/2009] (Back To Top)
