Pavilion officially opened at weekend

A refurbished pavilion in a village was officially opened on Sunday.

The work at the Eydon Sports Field included the provision of mains water, electricity and an upgrade to the pavilion facilities which was completed as a result of £47,393 worth of funds awarded by the Olympic Legacy from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund.

The work completed at the Pavilion and the Sports Field will now enable the inhabitants of Eydon and surrounding villages make more use of the sports field and its facilities.

Lady Parsons, who officially opened the pavilion at the ceremony, warmly congratulated the committee members and the numerous volunteers on their enthusiastic hard work over the past 14 months to see the project completed.
