  • Mission statement

    We are a voluntary community charity committee that is democratically elected and is responsible for the maintenence of a community owned recreation ground. We are at present fundraising to replace the dilapidated sports pavilion with a community centre to combine both sport and a meeting place for the community;
    we have already raised over £40,000and have had plans drawn and accepted by the local authority. We hold 2 main events(bonfire night and a summer fete) throughout the year not only to raise funds but as a community gathering. We also hold smaller events throughout the year.
    We are now looking for the funds to start to do the project either by match funding or sponsorship or donation of materials.
