The pavilion is due to be craned onto the ground later this month, with the project set to be finished in its entirety by February 2023.

It has been partially funded by a £98,650 grant from FCC Communities Foundation and will provide FA standard changing rooms, a social area with a kitchenette and serving hatch.

A further clubs area will be the new home of Wing Bowls club.

It is set to be officially opened in the New Year 2023.

Cheryl Raynor, FCC Communities Foundation local grant manager said: “We are delighted to have supported the parish council with this multi phased project and look forward to the pavilion being open early in 2023 for community use. This is an ambitious project with the parish council working hard to deliver these much-needed community facilities.”

Councillor Helen Sunday added: “This project has been a long time getting off the ground having been plagued with difficulties since the opportunity for

development first came to the table over five years ago. However, with considerable resilience and effort from everyone involved and the expertise of councillors Sanchia Davidson and Phillip Cronshaw from the new parish council recreation ground committee, this it is about to happen. It is delightful to see that finally our vision for these much-needed community facilities is moving closer to reality. We are extremely grateful for the funding FCC Communities Foundation has given us.”
