Canaries defender Sam Byram showed his support for the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation’s #BuildTheNest campaign when he visited the community hub site in Horsford last week.
Sam was given a tour of the existing facilities at The Nest before being shown the early stages of construction of phase two – a £4.6 million project to add multi-use indoor spaces, an IT suite, a 3G artificial football match, a café, and changing areas.
While on the construction site, Sam was given an idea of how the new facilities will look when completed and even tried his hand at bricklaying, under the tutelage of the team from Cocksedge Building Contractors.
The Nest is a multi-purpose community hub that has been designed to provide the ideal environment for the Foundation to address local issues such as social mobility, health and wellbeing, education and training, disability sports, and community cohesion, as well as providing facilities for grassroots football, sports participation, and events.
