After years of negotiation, rugby club Southern Nomads has signed a 21-year lease and will develop facilities for recreational use there.
Club chairman Dave Parkes said: ‘The granting of a lease represents a huge milestone, not only for PDMS Southern Nomads as a local rugby club, but also for the wider community of the south of the island.’

He added: ‘We look back with immense pride on the many years of work which have been undertaken to reach this point.’We will continue to raise funds towards the realisation of the project to give a high standard facility for generations to come.’
