Leaveslake Drove Centre, West Pinchbeck - This building was formerly know as the Sports Club Building on Leaveslake Drove Playing Field.  It has now been renamed to accommodate its new status as home to the Ladybirds Preschool.  With funding from the National Lottery the Parish Council have refurbished this building, some of the works including tarmac to outside areas, new 8' high security fencing, new windows and doors and a host of internal works.  This building is also home to Spalding Junior Football Club and they use the building and the field for training and for football matches.  Many people were involved in bringing this project to fruition with donations from our 3 District Councillors, local contractors and many volunteers from the Ladybirds Preschool  This is now something we can be proud of!
