CHINNOR Community Sports Club has received £237,000 to help replace the village’s sports pavilion.

The club has received National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Improvement Fund for a new and sustainable pavilion.

The site is on the playing fields off Station Road, Chinnor, which is used for football, cricket and tennis.

It will have new changing rooms, function rooms, a bar and kitchen area.

Parish councillor Steve Bird said: “We are delighted. This strengthens our objective to provide a first-class sporting experience for a range of ages, gender and abilities.”
