ASHWELL pavilion has been awarded a grant of more than £20,000 to help meet the cost of much needed repair work.
The grant of £23,955 is coming from the Landfill Community Fund, which is distributed by Waste Recycling Environmental (Wren) to projects which will enhance community life.
Jane Porter, for Ashwell Parish Council, said: "It is at least 20 years since the pavilion was last refurbished, so we are delighted to have this funding.
"We hope to put in a new water system, new showers, and make repairs to the roof."

Mrs Porter said the parish council would be arranging a meeting with all the regular user groups to discuss when the best time would be for the repairs to take place. She added: "Wren has been generous to Ashwell, and we hope to be able to get the refurbishment of the pavilion under way as soon as possible."
