Playground Plans 2023 –
The project is now at the stage where fundraising must begin in earnest in order for the village to be in a position to realise the plans. It is estimated that the total project will cost approximately £150,000. Members of the playground advisory group, other stakeholders and additional members of the village community have identified a number of possible sources for grants. These need to be explored further with the help of additional volunteers and local fundraising initiatives will also help add to the funds which need to be raised.
If you are able to help in ways large or small, with either time
or expertise, please contact

Original Playground: 1973 – 2021
The playground was originally developed in 1973, it is sited on the edge of the playing field, behind the Village Hall. It was renovated and officially opened on 2nd May 1993 (picture on the left), and is maintained by a committee of volunteers under the supervision of the Parish council.
The playground consists of a fenced area for the under 10’s.
with an open area adjacent for everybody to enjoy.
The original big slide was the signature attraction!
A recent addition at the end of the field is this multi-sport practice wall.
