Plans to build a community pavilion on Hethersett Memorial Playing Field have won the support of the Hethersett and the Meltons' Sports Association (HAMSA).
Planning permission has already been granted for renovation, extension and modernisation, but to date application for grants has not proved fruitful.
The latest meeting of HAMSA featured a lengthy discussion on the future or the pavilion. Members agreed that any building should be for multi-purpose community use and not just for sports groups/clubs. The pavilion should become a focal point for the village.
It was agreed that work was needed to illustrate the positive impact that a pavilion would have on the community. It was underlined that the current pavilion isn't fit for purpose and is an 'embarrassment to the village.'
It has been suggested the new building be used as café and a community facility for meetings.
HAMSA has awarded a grant of £100 to Hethersett Athletic Football Club to finance the start up for a new under-sixes team.
The next meeting of HAMSA will be the annual meeting and has been set for Monday, January 23 at 7.30pm at Park Farm Hotel.
