Mexico win the World Cup!!
12th May 2014
Mexico have won the World Cup…… or at least a team from Wolverton Tigermoths representing Mexico at the Grand Re-Opening of Wavendon Recreation Ground on Sunday 11th May. After more than 90 years of humps and bumps, the notorious Wavendon Recreation Ground was re-opened by the Duke of Bedford after a major levelling and reseeding project carried out by Frosts Landscape Construction Limited which was jointly funded by WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Limited), a not-for-profit business which awards grants from funds donated from FCC Environment to the Landfill Communities Fund as well as Woburn Lions Football Club whose youth football teams have been playing at Wavendon for a number of years.
Matt Trendall, Vicar of St Marys, Wavendon, performed a blessing, after which former Wavendon footballer and longstanding local resident, Peter George planted a commemorative tree kindly donated by Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd.
The event also saw the public re-naming of Woburn Lions FC, now to be known as Woburn & Wavendon Football Club. An unveiling ceremony saw the Duke of Bedford unveil the Club’s new badge, after which a 38 team World Cup Theme Tournament kicked off featuring local Under 7, 8 and 9 teams representing the World Cup Final teams.
Attended by well over 1000, the whole event was a roaring success, with even the weather staying fine.
