Match of Yesterday

Official opening of recreation area
Tim Ing, the chairman of the Old Buckenham Parish Council, was on hand yesterday to cut through the yellow and green ribbons and perform the opening ceremony for the new recreation area. It is situated just behind the village hall and has now been equipped with two football goals with nets.
So it was appropriate that the supporting act was a football match between a team from the High School and another team made up of various players of differing ages. One parish councillor took to the field and was even allowed to be referee for the second half. It is understood that the final score was eleven goals to four but it is not really relevant to say which team scored the eleven.
The spectators were treated to some lovely homemade refreshments and tea or coffee to warm them up. The sun never really managed to break through and it was rather chilly just standing around.
Hopefully this will be the start of another useful facility for the use of all the village.
