We’re pleased to report that the vandalised soccer goals on Lion Green were finally replaced with new, improved ones on Tuesday.
They were delivered a while ago but we needed to wait for the contractor to fix them permanently on site.
Public enthusiasm for the old goals was such that new ones had to be bought and Councillors authorised the expenditure out of the Council’s community fund.
On the advice of local experts, they’re bigger than the old ones at 6′ high and 12′ wide and about 35 yards apart, at the top end of the green. All are welcome to play.
Along with the new outdoor table tennis tables, this is a really good week for Lion Green!
