STUDENTS will soon be enjoying state-of-the-art sports facilities as work got under way on a new sports hall.
Builders have started work on phase one of Bassingbourn Village College's development which will include a sports hall, all-weather training pitch and car parking.
The sports centre will also be used by Bassingbourn Primary School and the community.
Head teacher Scott Hudson said: "This is obviously an exciting time and the building of these new facilities creates a range of opportunities not only for students of the college but also for the community."

The facilities will allow staff to incorporate a range of sports including badminton, basketball and football on four marked courts, and they will be able to teach dance and gymnastics in the multi-purpose area.
Mr Hudson said that the college's sporting possibilities would be endless.
