On 31st March 1950, Feltwell Parish Council acquired the land at Paynes Lane for the purposes of the Physical Training and Recreation Act 1937, from Edward Cyrill Newcome on which his mansion house, known as Feltwell Hall, and it’s adjoining meadows (in all about 15 acres), once stood.
Play Area & Tennis Court
The play area and tennis court are maintained by the Parish Council. Once a month, a risk assessment is carried out on all play equipment and any hazards immediately reported to the Parish Council. Quarterly and yearly safety inspection of the play area is carried out by independent RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) inspection engineers who ensure the equipment complies with British and European safety standards.
The Scout Hut is situated on the playing field. For further information about joining Cubs & Beavers, please contact Mrs Claire Scarff on 01842 827555.
Feltwell United Football Club regularly hire the Changing Room facilities on our playing field. At the moment, there is only a Senior team managed by Mr Carl Peckham.
The new skate park was official opened on 2nd June 2018. Three local Mums – Miranda Bane, Jo Martin and Angie Beale – worked tirelessly to realise this project. Working in conjunction with the Parish Council who donated £5000 towards this project, their application for a £35,000 grant from Sport England was successfully awarded last year and they also secured grants from the Sir Edmund de Moundeford Trust, the Geoffrey Watling Charity and the Shelroy Trust. Money was also raised locally by the community who took part in events such as a sponsored walk, race night and family fun day. Local businesses such as British Sugar, Center Parcs, Warren Energy and R K & J Jones all gave generously too. Read the full story here.

NEW Gym Equipment
Huge thanks to the Feltwell Community Group for their donation of £4500 (which included donations from the Edmund de Moundeford Trust, R K & J Jones, British Sugar and monies raised from village fetes and the Queen’s Jubilee Party in the Park)! This donation, together with money from lockdown grants received during the Covid-19 pandemic and £259.66 from our precept, has allowed us to purchase five pieces of gym equipment. Fresh Air Fitness installed the equipment near the play area on 11th January 2023 and each piece has detailed instructions on how to use it and the benefits that can be gained.
