The site was acquired for the Parish Council in 1977 from a Local Landowner to provide play facilities for the Parish, particularly the younger element and also to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
By 1986 due to considerable funding raised by the then Jubilee Playing Field Fighting Fund (JPFFF) and several grant application to various bodies a Tennis Court was established which together with Cricket Net facility and other smaller items were purchased to form the main play area.
The facilities have continued to expand over the years and are now probably one of the best grass playing fields in North Wiltshire. Because of its delightful location families spend many happy hours in the field relaxing and hopefully enjoying good weather whilst the children play in safety.
The use of all the facilities are free to all comers although Tennis Players do, but are not expected to, make voluntary donations towards the upkeep of the Court.
The equipment on the field is inspected annually by RoSPA in order to comply with Health and Safety Regulations and on a weekly basis a visual inspection is carried out by volunteers on a rota basis to comply with the Parish Council’s Insurers requirements.
The grass is cut regularly by a local contractor under contract to the Parish Council.
