Residents in Kilham are benefitting from improved leisure facilities thanks to funding from the Lissett Airfield Community Wind Farm Fund.

The Kilham Playing Fields Association recently received £8,748 towards its £12,498 project to create an all-weather court.

David Sheader of Kilham Playing Fields Association said: “The grant award from Lissett has allowed us to complete large projects and drive the whole idea of sport in the village.”
