The Vernham Dean Playing Fields Association has two functions to perform, number one, to maintain the current facilities and number two, to raise funds so that the facilities can be improved upon for all to enjoy. The committee work hard to ensure the village deliver some fabulous community events including the village fete and the bonfire night. We also aim to carry out some additional events; last year for example, we held our Coin Day whereby we attempted to cover the tennis court in loose change to contribute to the new multi sports court and facilities – this was a very ‘creative’ art installation!
As you will have noticed, the new sports facilities are standing proud down at the Bury Dene. It was a condition stipulated by Sport England that we charge for the use of the facilities to ensure the upkeep going forward. We have kept fees to a minimum to ensure this is affordable and therefore can be used by the community as a whole. Should you wish to become a member, please download the membership form (Roger – see attachment).
We are always looking for people to help in a number of capacities. We welcome new committee members to help with the planning of events and upkeep of the facilities and we also require help in the lead up to and during events, be it flipping a burger, collating the village calendar, painting benches or designing the next Fete poster… there will be something you can help us with. If this is something you would like to get involved in then please contact Kristie on 01264 737 389 or email email@example.com.
We also have a brilliant Pavilion which can also be hired for events such as birthday parties, dinner parties and much more. Booking can also be done online below.
