Pavilion and Sports Field

The pavilion and sports field are a community asset and are regularly hired out for all sorts of village and local group activities, as well as sporting activities and events.

There are 5 football pitches (junior and senior sized) which are hired out under contract to Market Bosworth AFC and a full cricket pitch, which is hired out under contract to Newbold Verdon Cricket Club. There is also an all-weather pitch which can be hired out to anyone, which also includes the pavilion. This has disabled access, a fully functioning kitchen, with a shower block, toilets, and a large main meeting/events area.

Should you wish to hire either the all-weather or pavilion, please check its availability using Hallmaster (details and link below) and then contact the Clerk directly.

Council now use a booking system called Hallmaster for all bookings in conjunction with the sports field facilities and the pavilion room hire. The bookings diary can be accessed using the below link, which will enable you to see live bookings for each date/week.

New All Weather Surface Update

Due to the need and demand for a fully working and professional surface for the all weather pitch, Council completed a public consultation back in 2021 and decided to move forward with this project.

Council agreed to apply for grant funding to cover the costs of resurfacing this facility and should hear soon, if it has been successful in its endeavours.

Should the grant funding be awarded, Council will be in a position to have a new 3G surface applied and be able to continue hiring this facility out for many more years to come and provide a professional standard facility for the community.

Public Consultation Questionnaire

The all weather pitch is in dire need of resurfacing, to not only ensure it is safe to play on but also to allow for other sports to be played, such as netball, basketball and tennis etc.

Council are currently applying for grants for this project as the cost is circa £30k, which we just do not have in our funds to pay for.

Part of the grant application process is community engagement. As much as we are aware of how much people would love to see this facility rejuvenated, the bodies who award grants, like to see it on paper. Therefore, please could you answer the below question to aid the council in securing funds for this project.

Please also keep checking back to see updates on our progress!

In the meantime, we thank you for taking the time in responding to this poll.
