Please note for health reasons NO DOGS
are allowed on the playing field (except service dogs).
Please support your
local playing field. Discos, race nights, quiz and supper evenings
are often arranged to raise funds as well as the annual Gala. The
playing fields are NOT run by the council. The council fund the
lease and maintenance of the site, but development costs are covered
by the fund-raising activities of the playing field committee.
All the play equipment
in the playground area has been provided through fundraising. It
has cost tens of thousands of pounds. The committee also takes care
of the day to day running of the facilities. A small band of unpaid
volunteers work to raise funds and run the facility and are always
on the lookout for new helpers. Many hands make light work –you
could help us by organising fund raising and sports activities,
or just by painting, digging or weeding.
