This Working Group was set up in 2018, with the remit of recommending to the parish council how the community’s engagement in sports and wellbeing activities can be improved, focusing particularly on opportunities to use Binsted Recreation Grounds and Pavilion. The Working Group’s remit includes any upgrading of the Pavilion buildings, facilities and landscape that may be necessary.

All Working Group recommendations will be put to full council for decision, whether these concern ‘ad-hoc’ short-term improvements or the case for longer-term investments.

The current Chair of the Recreation Working Group is Councillor Alison Melvin.

The Working Group last met on 26 November 2019. Meetings planned in March 2020 and February 2021 have both had to be postponed due to Covid lockdowns. A new date will be organised as soon as the current restrictions allow.
