Fenland village celebrates �380,000 pavilion opening
A FENLAND village has opened a new �380,000 sports pavilion.
The project in Terrington St Clement has been financed by the parish council and followed a �205,000 grant from the Football Foundation, the UK’s largest sports charity.
A further �75,000 was secured from Sport England, Norfolk Youth Fund donated �25,000 and West Norfolk Council chipped in with �15,000.
Parish councillor Adam Hannay said: “These facilities are long overdue and will be a massive asset to Terrington and the surrounding villages.”
The old pavilion was built in 1947 but had become obsolete and with only two changing rooms had made it difficult to host as many teams as they would like.

“The biggest impact the new pavilion has had is bringing youth clubs to the village,” said Cllr Hannay.
“So far this summer we have had 200 youngsters, aged between 11 and 17, sign up, which is fantastic.”
