Waveney District Council have agreed to a £50,000 refurbishment to sports clubs in the area.

The changing rooms and shower at the Common lane sports complex in Beccles will be transformed after funding was approved by the council.

After 18 months of planning and meetings with the rugby and football clubs, the work is expected to begin in May.

“This is a major sports facility in Beccles, both clubs are very successful with their adult teams but importantly also the junior and ladies sections,” Waveney District Councillor and cabinet member for operational partnerships, Graham Catchpole said.

“Hundreds of youngsters take part every weekend in season and this is something I support very much, we have to keep our children interested in sports of all kinds.”

Council leader Mark Bee said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to bring Beccles Sports Complex changing rooms up to a good modern standard.”
