The Pavilion has long been in need of refurbishment – the recent condition of the windows, doors and front wall, gave the building a distasteful, formidable and derelict appearance, for which vandalism has played a significant part. It was definitely not a showpiece for the village or for visiting sports clubs. Recent damage cost the Council £500 to improve the look of the building for the fete.
The Parish Council have looked at ways to prevent the vandalism and make it secure and have put together plans that will improve the facilities within the building to make it more inclusive. Work will begin in July/August.

Stepping Stone is one of 44 projects nationwide to attract funding from Sport England’s People, Places, Play inclusive legacy programme. The project aims to work directly with individuals offering advice, training and funding to help with their route into sport.
If all goes well as many as 200 people will acquire the skills, confidence and knowhow to access sport and become involved either as a regular participant, club member, coach, referee or administrator.
