A special evening set to take place in Scole will celebrate 30 years since the creation of the pavilion in the village.

Later this month an evening of invited guests will mark 30 years since the pavilion was put up at Scole Playing Fields and Community Centre, while volunteer Vic Buckle will be rewarded for his years of service to the cause.

Pearl Fisher, secretary of the Scole Playing Field and Community Centre committee, said: “We are very proud of the 30 years a small band of volunteers have given to keep this invaluable village amenity.

“We hope to prosper another 30 years with improved facilities but we need the support of everyone in the village who enjoy the events put on.

“It is important to point out that the Trustees manage these facilities and all facilities including the sporting ones are rented annually.

“These facilities are for village use and are open to anyone wishing to hire them.”

Currently 14 organisations and clubs use the facilities on a regular basis, and has held various events including christenings, funeral wakes, celebrations, committee meetings and fetes.

It has also been used as a polling station for local elections.

Plans are also afoot to try to expand the current hall to allow for larger functions to be booked there, as well as a separate hospitality lounge for the sports clubs.
