            • A league-standard football pitch with access to modern changing rooms and showers (hire fees apply) is available. We want to attract a local football league team to adopt us for their home for the forthcoming season – there are very reasonable terms on offer. Meanwhile, the pitch and facilities can be hired for one-offs, friendlies, etc – call Graham Land on 01460 281729 for info.
            • There is scope for other activities on the field. Please enquire
