We are delighted to announce that the Sports Hall at Greensward has been renamed as "The Richard Vingoe Sports and Community Centre" this week. Mr Vingoe worked tirelessly throughout his adult life to support the community and in particular the young people of Hockley. Mr Vingoe was also a governor of Plumberow Primary School and of Greensward College before he sadly passed away in June 2008.

Mrs Vingoe and her family and members of the local community were invited to unveil a commemorative plaque, cut the ribbon and enjoy student displays of gymnastics, kick boxing, dancing and singing.
