A secondary school near Bury St Edmunds opened its new all-weather sports court last week.
Ixworth Free School unveiled its new Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) on Friday, April 5, which received a £65,000 Garfield Weston Foundation grant from the charity’s 60th anniversary fund.
Representatives from Seckford Education Trust and the school officially opened the facility and headteacher Mark Barrow unveiled a plaque acknowledging the support from the Garfield Weston Foundation.
The facility will act as a central hub for sporting activity in the village, with the MUGA open for use by community groups and local primary schools.
Mr Barrow said: “I am pleased to have opened this wonderful new facility that will enhance sporting options for our students and local groups.
