The Wolfhampcote Recreation & Cricket field

The owners of Flecknoe Cricket Field, the Alderson-Smith family, very kindly offered Wolfhampcote Parish Council the opportunity to purchase the field on behalf of the parish. 

 

We are delighted to confirm that, due to the generosity of Parishioners, Flecknoe Cricket Club and friends of the Parish,  nearly £30,000 was raised and we have been able to add the field to the assets of the Parish which already included our fabulous Village Hall, the allotments, and Sawbridge Green.  The purchase means that the field is available for recreational use by all parishioners and ensures the field’s perpetual use by Flecknoe Cricket Club.  

 

The Parish Council have set up a sub-committee to manage the day-to-day running and maintenance of the field.  This is chaired by one of the Parish Councillors,  April Knapp (aprilknapp@hotmail.co.uk), and comprises two representatives from the Parish (Fiona Turnbull & Bob King) and two from Flecknoe Cricket Club (Martin Binder and Tom Falkingham).  A set of regulations has been agreed by the Parish Council and more details will be added to this website very soon.
