In the space of less than 10 years, an ordinary piece of farmland at the west end of Thornham,has been transformed into a six acre playing field featuring soccer and pitches, a tennis court, childrens’ and adults’ play and exercise areas. Our multi-use games area features 5-a-side football as well as basketball.
The cricket pavilion with changing rooms and tea making facilities sits at the top of the field next to the MUGA and, at the bottom of the field, is the well-equipped children's play area and outdoor table tennis table. A new outside exercise area for adults and grown-up children was opened in 2017.
Thanks to a generous grant from Sports England, the Grounds Committee has implemented a full maintenance programme to improve the condition of the outfield. In addition three new wickets have been added to the cricket square in 2018. Our part time groundsman, former cricket steward Adrian Siddley, joined us in mid 2018 and the whole playing field area is now looking much smarter and well kept.
