5 a side league due to start Thursday evenings in March. Interested teams should contact us using the enquiry form.
Subject to the weather the access lane and car park should be resurfaced by the end of February 2014.
This work, in addition to the recent pavilion extension, really does make this the best facility in the area for one off or regular hire.
The extension of the pavilion has now been completed creating a new function room (approx 35ft x 26ft) and a new meeting room (20ft x 18ft).
An alarm system and camera system has also been installed to create a more secure environment.
The building is now ready to hire so contact us to make a booking or to arrange to come down to view the facility.
The work continues at the Pavilion. Good progress is being made by the builders!
You may have noticed that work is well under way to extend the Pavilion.
Once completed, the facility will have extended function rooms along with enhanced security.
Any potential tenants for the pavilion are being considered now for the facility which should be ready for the new year. Fitness classes, Child Care, and groups that meet on a regular basis have all been muted as possible inhabitants.
With great rates on offer, contact us now to avoid disappointment?
As weeks go by you should be seeing a significant improvement in regards to litter at the site. We have now employed a regular litter pick to keep on top of things.
To further assist, 2 new bins are being sited and an existing bin is being relocated which should help providing people use them.

HAXEY Parish Council is gearing up to take over the running of Westwoodside Pavilion and Playing Fields.
Due to dwindling numbers, it is believed committee members from the Playing Fields Association feel it will be difficult to continue running the facilities, and so requested the parish council’s help.
At its last meeting there was concern among a few councillors that the task would prove too onerous, but chairman David Knowles was confident that a takeover would be successful.
The parish council hopes to take on trustee-ship to enable this to happen, and the full council authorised a new working party to study the matter in detail.
It will report back to members at the next meeting, and decide then on taking action forward.
Mr Knowles said: “Some members voiced concern about getting into a financial pit, but should this go ahead the parish clerk will have full control of the purse strings.
“There is no precept for the playing fields but in effect we should not be spending any more by running them.”
The pavilion, where the parish council meets, is in great need of renovation costing at least £25,000, added Mr Knowles.
But grant applications to both North Lincolnshire Council and the National Lottery may bring in some cash to spruce up the premises. Three football teams use the facilities, that include changing rooms and a small kitchen, regularly.
“We also feel that the access road needs upgrading, along with the car park, and this work will all form part of our plans,” added Mr Knowles.
“We will be taking advice from the Charity Commission, and if we have proper governance and a change of constitution I see no practical difficulties.
“Some members are unsure if we should get involved with this kind of activity, but others are strongly for. It was unanimous that we should go ahead and appoint a working party to take the matter forward.”
Westwoodside Playing fields Association will retain an interest and, Mr Knowles added: “This may all take a little time but it is my belief that such an involvement is exactly what we, as parish councillors, should be doing.”
