Though traditionally a quiet period August has seen not just the usual comings and goings of local families to the play area and the fields in

general but also in early August the hosting of a junior football tournament at the Sherfield English football pitches.

A host of youngsters expended some of their seemingly limitless energies playing a series of matches with quarter and semi-final matches topped off

by an exciting final itself which was won by a team from Totton.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable day over at the field and it was an

absolute pleasure to see the players and their parents enjoying themselves

so very much. It provided a great reminder as to why the recreational field is such an important part of helping provide the services and facilities that

are an integral part of any community, but especially one so rural and dispersed as our own. Thank you to all those who attended for making it such a success and

please allow me to extend a special vote of thanks to the host of volunteers who gave up their own time so freely to provide the tuck shop, teas and coffees and the delicious BBQ burgers and hot dogs. And a huge thank you also to SERP’s own Matt Mills who once again surpassed himself in an

amazing feat of organisation and communication and pulling the whole day
