Grand Day Out at Clanfield Sports and Community Centre 

The official opening day of the Clanfield Sports and Community Centre, last Saturday, was a grand affair. Crowds surged through the doors shortly after welcome speeches by trustees Terry Collins and Richard Goodman and the official ribbon cutting by Invictus Games gold medal winner Emma McCormick. The CSCC team and trustees were on hand to show residents around the new building with the Sports Hall and studio already in use by local youth sports groups.  

It has been a long haul to reach such an important day in the life of this village.  There’s been months of work undertaken by members of the parish council (all volunteers) who have scrutinised contracts, written hundreds of emails, overseen contractors work and, where necessary, rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in so that we made it to the Grand Opening on time. Thank you for your hard work.

We now have a brand-new community centre that is already gearing up to offer us a whole range of sports, classes and activities to enjoy.  We’ll keep you posted via our Events section: Clanfield Online Events  

So, now its over to the manager, Kelly Gould, and her team to take things forward and make the Clanfield SCC a new hub for the village and surrounding areas.  If you haven’t had a chance to pop into to see the new facility, then why not go along this week?  You can relax and think about the classes you are going to join as you enjoy their delicious coffee and cake in the cafe; better make that a double exercise class then – I’ll see you there!
