Winter 2019/20 Update
On November 2nd the committee enjoyed hosting another brilliant bonfire night celebration, with a wonderful firework display. Funds were raised via sales of food and drink and via voluntary donations, and everyone's generosity is much appreciated. Thanks to those who donated firewood for the bonfire and to those who volunteered to help out on the day.
This summer the Pavilion was painted with four coats of preservative and is now a fetching shade of green. This should help protect the new cladding from drying out too quickly, and looks much better. There is a new rubbish bin and dog park, and we've had some new rubber surfacing laid under the original swings. The play bark has been topped up new under the play equipment and our picnic table and bench now have a solid surface underneath.

Views From The Pavillion
You may be aware that since 2011 the West Witton Playing Field Committee has run the 50:50 Club with the aim of raising funds for the improvement and upkeep of our community playing field, in particular the cutting of the grass.
The Committee have recently heightened the awareness of the 50:50 Club to help generate additional funds, including distributing flyers to those households that were not already in the club.
The Committee would like to thank existing members and those members who have recently applied. As a result of your generosity, the membership has increased by more than 60% for which we are extremely grateful for your valuable and continued support. Not only does the increased membership provide additional funding it also increases the monthly cash prize!
