Wherwell Playing Fields
Wherwell Playing Fields short report May 2014
Wherwell Playing Fields (WPF) was founded in 1950 as a charitable trust responsible to Wherwell Parish Council (WPC) to manage and develop the facilities. These facilities include: football and cricket pitches, tennis courts, children’s play area, pavilion, parking area, etc. The facilities are available to the local community including the Wherwell Primary School (WPS). During the summer months the Wherwell Cricket Club regularly uses the grounds, playing in the Hampshire league, and in the winter season the Wherwell Football Club playing in the Andover Sunday league. Each year the WPF organises the Sports Fete and runs the 200 Club and other functions to raise funds to maintain, operate and develop the facilities. Over the past years the funds raised and large contributions in kind (labour of community and related business support) have enabled e.g. building of pavilion, provision of children’s play area and tennis courts, purchase of car park area and an area to extend the grounds.
