Play equipment in playing field: There is a large grass area for a sports pitch with football goals at either end. There is a range of well-maintained and annually inspected play equipment for children. A picnic bench was provided by Lois and Cyril Webb in memory of Alison, for use by villagers. There are several benches to sit and enjoy the area, kindly provided through donations and grants. A community orchard of heritage local fruit trees with a belt of wildlife planting runs along one side. Local children have created bug-hotels to encourage 6- and 8-legged residents to move it!
