With the exception of some minor details the project to upgrade the facilities at the recreation field has been completed. The new toilet block has been installed and was officially opened yesterday, at the Church Fete by Richard Crapper of Crapper & Sons.

Landscaping of the area around the containers on the Recreation Field is on hold until the condition of the ground improves, the old container will be removed at that time. Two hundred new stacking chairs have been bought along with thirty folding tables. Quotes for toilet facilities have been received and a decision will be made at the Annual General Meeting, this will allow time for the foundations and power to be sorted during April ready for delivery in May.

Today volunteers from the BHS laid a concrete path along the front of the containers to allow easy access to the facilities for both able bodied people and the disabled.

Those of you who have visited the Recreational Field recently will have noticed some changes. The Brinkworth Heritage Society has been raising funds to renew the kitchen and storage facilities at the rec since Christmas 2013 and so far we have managed to purchase an entirely new kitchen with new cookers and a better serving hatch.
Used for the first time at the Brinkworth Village Show (see pictures below) this is a welcome new facility for all the events staged on the rec field by ourselves and other village organisations. The next phase was to install two new storage containers on 30th September, alongside the new kitchen. A new all-weather path from the car park to all three buildings will then be provided to enable all weather access for everyone, including the disabled. Once the new storage facilities are fully installed the articulated storage container will be emptied and removed, and a final surface applied to the car park.
The Society is particularly grateful to; Crapper & Sons Landfill Ltd, Brinkworth Parish Council and Wiltshire Council for their help in funding these new facilities which should all be completed and in use before this coming Christmas. Early next year it is hoped to raise further funds to provide fixed toilets so that these may be used for all events and sporting fixtures on the field.
