The Parish Council is rightly proud of its recreation ground. A lot of people say it’s the best in the area – clean and safe. Many improvements and additions have been made in recent years. The Rec. is the responsibility of Graeme Kennedy, the Grounds Manager. Graeme is occasionally helped by a variety of youngsters, from Heathermount pupils to teenagers who are going in for awards (such as the Duke of Edinburgh). For further information on any aspect of the recreation ground, telephone Graeme on 01344 874268.
A summary of the facilities at Broomhall Rec. is given below.
Charters’ Tennis. The Parish Council has entered into an agreement with Charters Tennis. A tennis coach will be on hand with the overall aim of increasing community playing of tennis. For full details, including membership fees and court booking fees (if you do not want to be a member), see the Charters’ Tennis website. Alternatively, telephone 01256 463673.
A new Toddlers’ area has been constructed. It includes a sandpit, “talking flowers” and jumping mushrooms.
The Playground area includes swings, a climbing frame, and a helter skelter.
A new refreshment chalet, which is run by Monika, was opened before the 2015 season.
A gazebo and a water feature were added in 2013, near to the refreshment chalet.
The open grassed area of the recreation ground is available for you to enjoy, to picnic or play games. You are asked to keep this area tidy for the enjoyment of others. Various items of equipment have been installed here: a (climbing) dragon for children, 8 items of cardio workout equipment; a climbing feature, a rope trail; a multi-purpose goal; a set of cricket nets and movable soccer goals. There is also a pagoda.
A footpath has been built across the recreation ground. It ends at the refurbished bridge where it joins the original official path which will take you to Sunningdale railway station.
The Community Garden is tended by Graeme and his helpers. Its purpose is to demonstrate the cultivation on fruit and vegetables. The fruit is in a small cage which is next to the enclosed Community Garden.
