On May 1, the Town of Ladysmith held the Official Opening of the DL108 Turf Field.
Community activities marked the historic occasion. The ribbon cutting and naming of the turf field and new road took place May 1 at 4:30 pm, followed by the inaugural Mid Isle Highlanders Football Club game versus the Victoria Highlanders Super 20 Football Club.
A Field Users Group honoured locals who have contributed much to sports in the community. The street leading to the field has been named Jim Cram Drive, and the sport field will be called the Forrest Field after Denny and Mary Forrest for their contribution to sports in their community, said Ladysmith Mayor Rob Hutchins.
