ONE of the founding members of Bedale Athletic and Sport Association Adrian Grayson, was delighted to have the main hall at the sports clubhouse named in his honour.

Opened in 1974, the association has undergone many improvements and is due another extension in the coming months.

Mr Grayson said: "Plans to extend the now named Adrian Grayson Function Room by almost doubling the size will create new opportunities for the community to deliver a wide range of programmes, as well creating a fine space for weddings and parties. I feel deeply honoured to have this room named after me."
