Work is set to start on a state-of-the-art sports facility.

King Walden residents will soon be able to enjoy sporting and games equipment at Breachwood Green Recreation Ground.

The work, which will start on Monday, will be done in three stages. The first phase will see the erection of a new floodlit MUGA (multi-use games area) and outdoor gym equipment.

The second phase will see the installation of table tennis, street snooker and a 60-metre running track.

The third phase, subject to funds, will see the construction of a tennis court.

Funding for the project has come from various organisations, grants and charitable donations.
