Camblesforth Games Area before work
Residents of Camblesforth will soon be able to
enjoy a higher quality multi-use games area due to the replacement
of the existing substandard turf surface.
The development will provide a harder wearing,
synthetic surface which can be used for a variety of different
activities all year round. The project was established after the
young people of Camblesforth and the Parish Council drew attention
to the severe erosion of the current surface as a result of over
The new surface will maximise the use of the
facility and enable a variety of sports and activities to be played
throughout all seasons. Use of the space will also be made safer as
the resurfaced area will encourage ball games to be kept to the
designated space and away from neighbouring properties.
Sue Walsh, Chair of Camblesforth Parish
Council, said “We are really excited that work is due to start on
the resurfacing of our multi-use games area. This fantastic
facility is a real asset to our village and we are looking forward
to seeing our young people using it throughout the summer.”
The project is being managed by environmental
charity Groundwork North Yorkshire and funded by landfill community
grant from Drax Power Ltd with match funding from Camblesforth
Parish Council .
