Sports Area

The Parish Council over the past few years has been considering how to improve the sports area which is run down and in need of some TLC. The Parish Council has recently applied for grant funding to pay for works to be done. The outcome of the application will not be known until the middle of October. It is hoped that should the application be successful, work can start in the Spring of 2018. However, if the application is not successful, the Parish Council will discuss and decide the future of the area. As residents can appreciate, the Parish Council does not have the funds required to update the sports area to a MUGA without grant funding.

Whilst it is the intention of the Parish Council to renovate the area, the Parish Council was contacted to request the hire of the area for children's entertainment/exercise/fair. As you will have seen this was agreed and it is open. The fair currently closes on 10th September.

Monies received from this temporary arrangement will go into the renovation pot of the sports area.

We have received many positive comments from visitors, residents and businesses.

As always we are always encouraging residents to send in their views whether negative or positive and would love to hear what residents feel about the temporary use of this area. Views and comments should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will keep residents up-to-date with the progress on the sports area through our Newsletter and on this website.
