Sports Pavilion

The Parish Council are delighted to have completed the refurbishment of the village sports pavilion to support the local cricket, tennis and football teams.

Having benefitted from grant money allocated by FCC Communities Foundation, Cobbett Environmental and the Lottery, the work to bring our facility up to standard was completed in the summer of 2020 and is now in active use supporting sports and outdoor activities in the village and surrounding area.

The sports pavilion is positioned in one of the most tranquil and beautiful corners of the village and boasts an array of facilities nearby that our community can now use whilst having access to everything that teams, organisations, schools or parties need to enjoy the outdoor space.

Now available on the sports field and surrounding woods are: cricket, tennis courts, outdoor classroom, football pitch and goals, playground, nature trails and hire of our multi-purpose studio and sports pavilion.

Sports pavilion hire rates

The sports pavilion is now available for hire (contact details on the right).

£25.00 for a half day

£45.00 for a full day

The pavilion is strictly not for profit so any money raised through renting the venue is used to maintain or improve the facilities for the local community. Additionally we welcome any help or contributions from members of the community to assist towards keeping the premises and landscape in a pristine condition.
