WE NEED YOU ! to help to raise funds for the maintenance and general upkeep the of the Sports pavilion, grounds and equipment in East Haddon

by East Haddon War Memorial Playing Fields in East Haddon, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

Any surplus funds raised would be put towards improvements in the pavilion.


East Haddon Playing Fields was gifted to the village in 1950 and has been developed into the smart recreational field that it is today.  

I am sure you will agree this is an important part of OUR COMMUNITY

There is a team of volunteers that ensure there are funds available and arrange maintenance and upkeep of the pavilion and facilities.

We have great support from our Parish Council but we also rely heavily on the various fundraising activities throughout the year eg raffles, Hollowell. However the largest of these is the bonfire and fireworks display that was arranged this year for November 5th and will definitely be missed.
Due to Covid-19 we have had to cancelled this event and consequently our funds for maintenance and upkeep will be seriously depleted.

The annual running costs for the entire facility are £5000pa.   This figure does not take into account any improvements that might be required or emergency repairs that we occasional have to deal with.  We have trimmed back where we can but there is always ground maintenance, electricity, water, licenses, health and safety inspections and insurance that must be paid/undertaken.  

We need to ensure that we can afford to cover the bills and keep the facility usable for years to come, hence our reaching out to the community to help if you can.  Anything will be gratefully received and together we can keep this community space great!

thank you
