The field of dreams became a reality as well-wishers gathered to support the opening of the new Sporting Club Thamesmead facility. Sir Trevor Brooking was on hand to cut the ribbon on behalf of the Football Association. While the project took nine years to complete,all those involved were proud of the fact that the vision was now a reality. Trust Thamesmead were the drivers of the project and with support from a number of sports funders.
Mayor of Greenwich Councillor Angela Cornforth joined the A-List of the sports fraternity together with the Leader and Mayor of Bexley along with Teresa Pearce the local MP. I was delighted to be invited to witness a new chapter in the life of Thamesmead.
