Work to improve and extend the building at Green Lane West started in November after the parish council secured more than £153,900 in funding.

The existing building will be extended to provide new changing rooms and shower facilities, a community office and function room, as well as a bag room and lockers.

Paula Lowe, Rackheath Parish Council's chair, said: 'The council consulted with the football teams, residents and others who currently use the facility and it was clear from the feedback that the condition of the facilities was a major concern, so I am delighted that we have been able to secure funding and start work on these improvements.

'Rackheath has a growing and vibrant community and I know that this facility will be well used and will be of real benefit to residents.'
