A ceremonial date stone has been laid at the Belper Meadows Community Sports Club new pavilion, built by Carter Construction and Armsons.
Club committee member Wendy Morris said: “We have worked hard for many years to create this much needed new building, and are thrilled finally offer 21st century facilities.”
The stone, laid by Robert Kirkland of club sponsor Bowmer & Kirkland,was donated by Amber Pre-Cast.
It marks the completion of phase one, making the first floor ready for use.
It includes changing rooms, toilets, a clubroom and disabled access, next to the bowls, tennis and hockey areas.
