Replacement of the pavilion at the Rec has been discussed by users and the Parish Council for some years. The existing facilities, built in the 1960’s as the result of a great community effort, are now in need of replacement. The recent redecoration by the Cricket Club has really improved the appearance for the short-term but significant underlying issues remain. Now that a sum from the section 106 agreement for the Claybush development has been assured, users and parish councillors want to progress with the project. The new building will be in the same location, on a similar footprint and include enhanced facilities for sports and community use. See the latest minutes for updates.
