The floodlights were officially unveiled at Whittlesey Juniors FC on Sunday, August 23 during a match between the club’s under 12s teams.

Claire Rayner, chair of The Whittlesey Charity which donated the floodlights, as well as mayor of Whittlesey Cllr David Mason were on hand for the launch, where the lights came to the fore during a damp evening.

The lights are believed to have cost £6,200 with the Whittlesey Sports Association contributing £450.

Mrs Rayner said: “The charity was keen to support local good causes and this was an excellent project which will benefit the community.”
