East Boldre School Fields Trust is a Registered Charity No. 299118

The field is not a local authority facility. After the village school closed in the 1980s, a charity called 'The East Boldre School Fields Trust' was set up to manage the field and hall as a recreation ground for the use of local people. A newly established tennis club raised the funds to build and run two courts.

Various community events are held through the year like the annual Bonfire Night party and fireworks display, and workshops and play events for children.

The Trust is managed by a committee of volunteers who represent the local community and the tennis club.

In 1999 a Community Lottery grant enabled us to rebuild the playground and add the basketball / skateboard area and in 2003 we obtained lottery and council grants to improve the building too. We are delighted with it! Now we continually have to raise funds to maintain it. If you would like to contribute please use our Contact Page to join 'Friends of the Field'.

The Field

The main field is large; though smaller than a full size football pitch, it is ideal for other formal and informal active games.

There is a flat tarmac area, often used for learning to ride bikes as well as for the intended use of ball games like football, netball and basketball and for skateboarding.

There is an activity playground with swings and climbing equipment.

These outdoor facilities are open to all and cannot be privately hired.
