Community groups and businesses in Wymondham are being urged to take advantage of a new meeting space, which has not yet been built.
Town council plans for a new sports pavilion at Kett's Park, for the benefit of junior football teams and the tennis club, were approved last year by South Norfolk Councillors.
Officials from Wymondham Town United youth football club are now looking to hear from groups interested in using the meeting space at the building in Harts Farm Road.
Work on the pavilion is set to begin in the summer, which will create new changing rooms, a social room and kitchen facilities, near to the Kett's Park Community and Recreation Centre.

Jonathan White, secretary of the youth football club, which has 14 teams and 250 members between 5 and 16 years, said the interest from community groups would help with a funding bid to the Football Foundation.
'There is not enough meeting space in Wymondham and the gallery viewing area will be able to accommodate up to 60 people on a regular or ad hoc basis to hire at very reasonable costs,' he said.
