CHILDREN are still allowed to visit Cambourne's £250,000 cricket pavilion, despite some claims youngsters had been banned.
Reports in some newspapers suggested the parish council had imposed a ban on children in the village's pavilion in School Lane, Lower Cambourne.
However, John Vickery, clerk to the parish council, told The Hunts Post: "We haven't banned children from the pavilion. We just do not think it should be rented out for children's parties as we feel it is not appropriate because it is a small room, which contains glass trophy cabinets."
The council's leisure and amenities committee has decided it should be let only to adults, as they feel the Hub community centre would be more appropriate for children's activities and parties.

Mr Vickery insisted that the pavilion, which was paid for by the Cambourne Consortium of developers and officially opened in May, will continue to be available to children, including members of the village's three youth cricket teams.
