A groundbreaking ceremony has been held to mark the start on site of the new £600k Penzance Cricket Pavilion.
Interserve has been appointed as principal contractor for the new building, which will also provide modern educational and sports facilities for Penwith College.
The majority of funding has been put forward by Truro and Penwith College, with additional funding being contributed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Penzance Cricket Club.
Interserve’s south west regional director Richard Ellis commented: “We are delighted to have commenced work on the new pavilion building which will provide much needed new cricket facilities for Penwith College, Penzance Cricket Club and the local community”.
The new pavilion is due for completion in December.
