Playing Fields Committee

The Playing Fields Committee was formed to oversee the management of the parks and playing fields that are key part of Ashton Keynes village life. Management of the playing fields ranges from ensuring the grass is cut to driving major improvements to the Bradstone pavilion.

 

There are 3 main areas in the village that fall under this committee
  1. The Lotts playground - A quiet park designed for younger children to have fun and learn new skills. The playground is away from roads and has a good range of play equipment from swings to slides.
  2. The High Road playing field - This offers a range of facilities including football pitches, tennis courts, football pavillion and a range play equipment. In addition there is the youth shelter which is an area designed to allow young people to meet.
