New suite open at AFC

A NEW sports suite at a £2million football stadium has been officially opened.

The recently-completed Laurence Walter Suite at AFC Sudbury’s MEL Group Stadium is now available for sports, exercise, and children’s groups to trial free of charge.

The suite has a specially adapted soft floor and can cater for physical activities such as aerobics, dance classes, martial arts, circuit training and children’s parties.

A number of community groups are already using the suite, but the club is keen to attract more.

Richard Instance, a member of the club’s executive team, said he was delighted with the room.

“We have a real community ethos at this club and are proud to be able to offer such a wonderful facility to local groups,” he said.

The stadium in Brundon Lane was opened last year by football pundit Jamie Redknapp, and is considered one of the region’s finest football facilities.
