Upper Clatford Sports Field and Pavilion

History

In 1948 Major Godfrey Edward Miller Mundy of Red Rice donated just over 5 acres situated between Goodworth and Upper Clatford to the Parish Council for use as a sports and recreational venue. Thanks to the recent practical and financial support of the Upper Clatford Youth Football Club and the Upper Clatford Cricket Club the Pavilion has been modernised and a Car Park have been added.

The Pavilion has changing rooms for home and visiting teams and there are hot and cold showers and a kitchen.

Current Usage

From 1st September to 30 April Upper Clatford Youth Football Club have use of the field which limits other teams from making use of it.

From 30 April to 1 September. Due to the sad demise of the Upper Clatford Cricket Club, the cricket field and pavilion are now available for hire separately or together on a daily or longer basis if required.

Hire Arrangements for Visitors

The field and the pavilion are available for hire separately.

In the Winter it would only be the Pavilion but in the summer period both the field and the pavilion are available when not used by Village Clubs.

Booking & Availability

For hire charges and bookings please contact the Parish Clerk by email to upperclatfordparishcouncil@gmail.com

Upper Clatford Village Clubs and Societies

Upper Clatford Women's Institute

Upper Clatford Women's Institute meets on the third Wednesday of the month in the King Edward VII Memorial Hall (the Village Hall) at 7.30pm. Each month there is usually a guest speaker followed by refreshments and time for a good chat and the evening ends with a short business meeting which deals with past and forthcoming events.

We are a friendly group of about 36 members and are always pleased to welcome visitors and potential new members to our meetings. We have a Drama Group, a Book Group, a Walking Group and a Lunch Group all of whom meet once a month. From time to time we have visits and various trips out and about.

We are very involved in village activities. We have a bee-hive which provides honey for us to sell on our produce stalls throughout the year and we look after a "bee friendly" garden at the Village Hall. We also have a group who enjoy Craft activities and meet on alternate Thursday afternoons. We have made items such as "twiddlemuffs" for dementia patients, "drainage bags" for ladies recovering from surgery, cushions for hospital patients etc. We also make craft items to sell at our popular village events such as the Christmas Mince Pie morning and our Summer Cream Tea event.

For further information on any aspect of our group, please contact either our President, Liz (359319) or Secretary, Maureen (394806).
