At last! Work is under-way to construct £500K sports pavilion at Estover Playing Field in March
It's been well over 30 years in the making but today (Monday) was a momentous one for sports fans in March as work got under-way on a new £500,000 pavilion at Estover Playing Field.
Campaigners fought for decades for improved sports facilities at Estover Playing Field but a previous reluctance by the landowning Cambridgeshire County Council to grant a long-term lease stymied progress.
But that is history and now, with a 99-year lease at a peppercorn rent safely secured by March Town Council,work began on Monday with Kit Owen, chairman of the Estover Playing Field board of trustees cutting the first sod for the new pavilion.
