Many of you will have seen that our new pavilion is finally complete and ready to be used by the community it was built for. Situated behind Blakedown Primary School , the rugged driveway stretches to a field out of sight and the new pavilion. Here you will find a capacious car park which is used morning and night by parents delivering children to the school but is generally quiet and has space for you.

Beside this car park is a lovely children’s play area. Here state of the art play equipment compliments more traditional swings for any child to enjoy. This area is due to be further improved with more play things for younger children and a sturdy new fence. If you would like to be involved in this new phase please contact Diane.
The field is used for football in the winter season and cricket in the summer with the benefit of an ‘all weather strip’. Local teams use this ground as their home and always welcome new members.
The tennis club plays all year round with many friendship groups meeting to use the courts and teams playing in leagues. There is coaching available and new members are always welcome.
All the sports people use the new pavilion.
The pavilion is also used for community events such as the Christmas Amble with refreshments served here and the walk starting and finishing from the pavilion. Meetings can be held in the pavilion for community organisations or for private users. Parties for children and adults are welcome with the advantage of doors opening onto the wide open space of the field for games and fresh air. Classes are held in the pavilion during the day and evening. Currently Yoga classes are held at 7pm on Tuesdays and Toddlers Music Group on Monday mornings at 10 am.
If it is a beautiful healthy body you want to work towards then there is an exercise camp every Tuesday and Thursday from 9.30 am.
The pavilion is warm and welcoming with plenty of tables and chairs, kitchen, cloakrooms and disabled facilities.
