A historic Dearne sports pavilion has been saved from potential closure thanks to a double cash boost totalling more than £80, 000.

Trustees feared for the future of the weathered changing facilities at Mexborough Athletic Ground, which dates back 125 years and has not been updated since the 1970s.

But the pavilion, off Hampden Road, now has a sporting chance at a long-term future after trustees secured two grants to pay for a major refurbishment.
