We are restoring our recreation ground as a place for our village community to relax, exercise and play

The village of St. Germans does not have a communal green space. The recreation ground site was left abandoned 20 years ago when it ceased to be used by the school. In 2014 a group of volunteers from the village started to cut back growth to rediscover the old football pitch. With help from a local farmer and support from the Parish Council and other local funders the football pitch was restored, fenced and reseeded. The grass is cut by a local volunteer. 

Following consultations with the community in 2016, we moved on to restore a small adjoining area of woodland to create paths, picnic tables, an outdoor table tennis table and a unique wooden shelter.

The last part of our project that will see our work completed is to ensure the site has a long term future. We plan to collaborate with the Green Gym project to encourage our community to maintain their involvement and keep active through helping at the site; we want to ensure our site is secure and we want to ensure that it is biodiverse through creating areas of wildflower and insect logs.

Let's make 'St. Germans Community Recreation Ground' happen
