Buckland Brewer Playing Field

The playing field, sited next to the allotments at the "top" of the village, is a very popular and well-used facility that is not provided by any of the public/council bodies and is not publicly funded.

The land itself reverts to a private landowner, and is managed by a trust which consists of three trustees and a (sub) committee, all volunteers, known as the Playing Field Association.

The committee retains day to day responsibility for maintenance of the area and for raising sufficient funds annually to ensure that the playing field is in a suitable condition to permit the public to use it.
£1,350 is needed every year to ensure the facility continues – much of this money pays for public liability insurance and grass cutting.
For more information contact the Secretary Teresa Hector 01237 451669

We next meet on Wednesday 8th May 2019, 8pm Coach & Horses

Note to dog walkers - for many years dog owners have been permitted to use the playing field, and for a similar number of years the Playing Field Committee has been soul searching, debating whether to allow this to continue. At the moment dog walkers are still welcome on the field.However, please bear in mind the fact the during spring/summer 2017 considerable investment has been made to benefit the people of this community and to encourage healthy exercise & social activity by adults and children alike. As you use this facility, please respect this. Bag and place your dog's mess in one of the bims provided.
