Avening Playing Field
Avening Playing Field is going to have a complete makeover!
Phase 1
Supported by Avening Parish Council
Our   centrally   located   general   purpose   playing   field   has   become   very   tired,   and   the children's     play     equipment     has     reached     end     of     life,     with     much     of     it     being decommissioned.      Following   extensive   consultation   with   the   village   by   the   Parish Council   (PC)   and   Playing   Field   Association   (APFA),   a   strategic   plan   has   been   agreed for a major upgrade of the facilities to provide a sporting and leisure hub for all ages.   The   first   phase   is   complete,   and   replaced   of   all   the   play   equipment   with   modern pieces   for   infants   and   juniors.      The   budget   for   this   was   around   £21k,   with   the   money being   raised   by   events,   small   grants,   an   initial   contribution   from   the   football   field proceeds, and support from the PC. The   next   phase   is   being   led   by   the   PC,   and   will   require   structural   work   on   the   field   to accommodate   an   improved   grass,   multi-sport   playing   surface   and   running   track.      At the   same   time,   we   will   create   a   new   woodland   walking   trail,   a   mountain   bike   track, hard   standing   for   off   road   car   parking,   and   provide   adult   gym   equipment   around   the site to provide a health and well-being benefit to the whole village, The   work   can   be   phased   depending   on   available   budgets,   but   would   be   more   cost effective    and    less    disruptive    if    completed    all    at    once.        We    already    have    partial funding   in   place   for   the   c£250k   project   with   pledges   from   the   PC,   and   other   local authority    sources.        We    are    therefore    applying    for    additional    grant    funding    to complete the financial package.
