Christmas in the Square 2019

posted 5 Nov 2019, 02:21 by Andy Oldfield   [ updated 5 Nov 2019, 02:21 ]

Playing Fields will again be supporting Alison & Noel Prosser’s annual Christmas in the Square on Sunday, 15th December 2019, 4-6pm.  This is slightly later in the month than usual so please make a date in your diary for this wonderful event which many people say is the start of their Christmas festivities.  Father Christmas is booked to come along to chat with the children, hand out gifts and switch on the tree lights.  There will also be entertainment, children’s games, a Pyne’s hog roast, Licenced Bar, Mulled Wine and other refreshments!  Be sure to look out for further information.

MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) Floodlights Replaced

posted 5 Nov 2019, 02:16 by Andy Oldfield

We are fortunate to have been given an anonymous donation to enable us to replace the MUGA lights.  With the evenings getting darker this will be a huge benefit to the Playing Fields.  If there are any groups that would like to take advantage of the MUGA and book evening sessions, please book through our website.  A big thank you to our benefactor, we are very grateful

Race Night success

Thanks to all that attended the sell-out evening.  Despite some gremlins with the AV all had a great time and the prosecco certainly flowed.  We raised a staggering £1800 over the evening so both we and Jan Ashcroft really wish to thank those that supported us.  Jan still needs a bit more to reach her target of £1500 to enable her to complete the Moon Walk for breast cancer care, so why not buy a balloon at the May Fayre.


We will be running again next year due to requests already received, we will however ensure that the AV is fully operational well in advance, though we will be putting a limit on of 120 tickets this time.

Everyone knows someone who is affected by Breast Cancer. If I can make eve
n the slightest difference to help wipe out this terrible disease which has affected so many families and friends then it will be worth every step and although I realise it will be difficult, I will endeavour, on behalf of all who sponsor me to enjoy the scenery at the same time.


There will be a raffle, a tote and an opportunity to own a horse.

New developments at the playing field

posted 13 Jun 2013, 06:47 by Andy Moll   [ updated 13 Jun 2013, 08:21 ]

We are this year looking to deliver the first of a number of projects to enhance the playing field facilities.  By the time you read this we will have met with all of the children in the school and hopefully some of their parents to prioritise just what it is that we will be doing first.  The ideas we have so far are:


BMX area

Trim trail fitness & Balancing activities

Big Slide

Balance logs and playschool reading area

Zip Wire

Sky Net

Something big to climb on


Come and be part of the decision at the school 17th June 14:15, or at our AGM or see more information here

Notice of our AGM


Firstly it is that time of year when we the North Curry Playing Field need to have our AGM.  We are looking in addition to extra members this year, but also for someone to come onto the committee and take on the role of Treasurer, this while not a huge task is an important one, Paul Gratton who has done this for the past three years, is looking to hand on to someone new, but the great news for us is that he is still staying on the committee.


So please if you are interested in being Treasurer or just helping us manage some of the exiting challenges we have this next year get in touch or volunteer at the AGM
