MUGA Works in Progress

Dated: November 2018



At the Watlington Parish Council meeting held on Thursday, 5th October 2017, it was resolved to seek the approval of the Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government to apply for a loan of £46,492.88 up to 6 years for the purpose of a Multi Use Games Area on the Recreation Field, Church Road, Watlington.

The annual loan repayments are estimated to be £8,139.50.  These will be repaid from earmarked reserves, savings from the upgraded street lighting and other generated income.

If you have any views or opinions you wish to offer please contact the Parish Council.

The Parish Council has now reached the stage of applying for funding from various agencies and organisations for the new MUGA. In case you are unaware this is to be placed on the Church Recreation Field where the basket ball court is, extending over the hard standing area towards the Youth Shelter.

This MUGA will be floodlit and enable 5-a-side football, tennis, basket ball and net ball to be played within 3-4 metre high fenced area. On the outside there will be further surfacing with a table tennis table, gym equipment and various bespoke games. All this can only happen if we secure sufficient funding.

To do this we have to show a need for these facilities and for this we require members of our community to step forward, those of you who are keen for a tennis club, a netball or basketball team, keep fit enthusiasts or any other activities that can take place on a fenced floodlit outdoor carpeted surface.

For those interested please contact the Clerk or Chairman at Watlington Parish Council
