To build a confined, safe patio area next to the sports field. Would be a great area to watch local sport, meet friends and access the Club

by Thurleigh Playing Field Association in Thurleigh, England, United Kingdom


Thurleigh playing Fields are a non profit making charity used by a large percentage of locals and people from surrounding villages and opposition sports teams.

Our Aims

We are hoping to build a NEW patio area within the playing fields. By creating a safe area for people to meet we aim to create a closer, healthier community. More people exercising, more people socialising, more people enjoying their local facilities. Wider community use of the playing fields and social club. The money will pay for the project and we then look forward to everyone enjoying it. This is where we would like to build the patio:


Why it's Important

The sports field is used by Thurleigh Cricket Club (pictured) who have 3 teams playing every week in the summer and by Thurleigh Football Club (pictured) and Bedford A6 Football Club who play on Saturday's and Sunday's over the winter months. Having these new facilities would massively improve the experience of all the players and spectators of these teams who currently have nowhere to sit and watch the local sports.



Thurleigh has no pub or meeting place, so the playing fields are the hub of the village. Every day they are busy with dog walkers, children playing, parents chatting while their kids use the play area and locals meeting their friends. Having somewhere for them to use when visiting the playing fields would make them a much more desirable venue and increase usage week in week out.

How we will use the money

We aim to raise enough money through fundraising and grants to build a brand new patio area out from the Social Club, right next to the cricket and football pitches. It will be approximately 128m sq, with a white picket fence surrounding it and wooden benches to seat as many people as possible. We are also hoping to install bi-fold doors into the sports and social club with disabled access into the building.

The patio would look a bit like this (but bigger)!


Covid affect

Unfortunately last season's cricket league did not take place and the previous 2 football season's have both been cancelled due to COVID. The cricket teams, football teams, playing field association and Sports & Social Club have all taken a hit financially due to lost revenue. New facilities would provide a real boost for all who use Thurleigh Playing Fields.
