Young people in Narborough now have a new place to play following the opening of a brand sports facility at the weekend.

The multi-use games area at the village’s community centre was formally opened on Saturday morning.

The ceremony marked the end of a four-year project commissioned by the parish council and funded from a £54,000 package generated from legal agreements struck as part of the planning consent for housing schemes developed by Persimmon Homes.

Parish council chairman Peter Wilkinson, who opened the site, said the new facilities had also impressed visitors to the village.

He said: “It’s enabled us to have a lot more than what we ever have.

“It’s the first lot of stuff we’ve had in about 10 years when we had a grant for the original playground.

“The Narborough football team has said their opponents have been really impressed.”

Mr Wilkinson, who is also a Breckland district councillor for the village, paid tribute to the work of parish clerk David Burchell to secure the facilities.
