Chatham-Kent councillors are offering their full support in the effort to renovate the sports field at Lambton Kent Composite School.

Following a unanimous vote, council is promising almost $135,000 to match whatever is raised in the community over the next year.

Janice Wranich, with the Dresden Community Development Association, says her work has just begun.”We look forward to regrouping with other members of our collaborative to pursue additional grassroots fundraising,” says Wranich. “As well as to look for additional grant funding.”

Wranich admits at best it’s going to be the fall of 2015 before actual construction can begin.
