August 2021 update
We're delighted that as part of West Witton Feast we will be hosting the finish line of Penhill Fell Race on Saturday, August 28th and the Family Fun Day the following day, with games and music. We look forward to seeing everyone back on the field!
May 2021 update
Thanks to everyone who came along to the recent seven a side football game, raising £160 for playing field upkeep.
The weeds on the play park have been sprayed and thanks to the recent dry weather they are starting to recede. The longer grass at the edge of the park has been strimmed and it's all looking rather neat. Many thanks as ever to our volunteers, with special thanks to Isobel Walker.
We still have ongoing rabbit hole issues, some are living at the edge of the park and under the shed. If anyone can offer to assist with this please contact the PC or one of the playpark committee. Thanks!

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 has 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 all those that take part. As a result of your generosity, the membership has increased almost to capacity, 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!
January 2022 Winner - Lindsey Froggitt - Congratulations!
