Binley Woods' Refurbished Pavilion

The village of Binley Woods occupies an important role in my life as that is where I spent the first 17 years of my life. My parents owned three houses there increasing in size with each move as our family grew. On Sunday I was pleased to be invited to the opening of their refurbished pavillion on the playing field where I spent much of my childhood playing football. The opening was conducted by Mayor Bill (as he was introduced by the Chairman of the Parish Council) and all three Councillors representing the village at both Borough and County were there. I met several people who told me they remembered me in short trousers & so had an enjoyable afternoon accompanied by a walk down memory lane.
