So, was all the hard work worthwhile? Oh yes! In early summer 2017 we had the great pleasure of witnessing Councillor Peter Watts declare the new Pavilion open. Even after just a few months usage we can clearly see what an enormous difference it has made to Smarden sporting life. With the cricket season now coming to a close, and the football season now underway the Pavilion is making a huge contribution to the village. To all the many individuals and organisations who made this possible, we say thank you!
