SERP 2000 Sherfield English Recreation Project 2000

We hope that you enjoyed the festive period and moving into 2024. And so another year is upon us, and what weather we’ve had! From wild and wet to bright and very, very cold.

The wet weather has again caused issues to the pitches at the Sports Field

with a number of matches cancelled and extra work for the greens-man trying to get the pitches back in use. You may have seen that the children’s playground has sadly been closed for the time being. The equipment has suffered badly from the frequently soaked ground causing the structures to

rot.

We have received some very generous donations from villagers towards the playground repairs/refurbishment and we are so very grateful for these. The equipment is however now beyond simple repairs and must be replaced

at a much greater cost and this is dependent on the drainage being

completed.

The committee are working with the Parish Council and both TVBC and

other bodies in order to secure the funding needed to put in the drainage to

keep the site functioning all year and to replace the playground equipment.

News from the Pavilion.

The site is an important hub for the village and is an asset for all to use. We are a small committee working hard to make the recreation ground remain

at the heart of Sherfield English’s village life, but we do need help.

Could you volunteer to perhaps help on our committee, or to get involved in the planning of events? We need willing souls to join our merry band, and no particular experience necessary. The more helpers we have the

more the work’s spread out, and the more fun for all.

We know that everyone leads busy lives, but we need help to make the progress to benefit us all.
