Recreation Association

Dunton Recreation Association (DRA) look after the playing field and the amenities on it on behalf of the village. Elected volunteers hold regular committee meetings to plan and implement activities.

It is well maintained. Much of the excellent work has been carried out by local volunteers and small businesses.

The DRA  is especially grateful  
for the continued support from
Daniel Spring of Spring and Daniels Carpentry and Philip Cook of Philip Cook Electrical Solutions.


In addition to  changing rooms and toilets, the pavilion has a bar area and a furnished and carpeted function room. It is used for events organised by the DRA plus meetings of local groups and private hire. It can accommodate 40 people seated at tables or up to 60 standing.  A fully licensed cash bar is available on request at functions.

As a venue it is ideal for a whole range of activities such as children’s parties, christenings and family celebrations, sports activities, meetings, classes e,g handicrafts and fitness.

The changing rooms and function room have been extensively refurbished over the last couple of years. In 2018 it was the turn of the Kitchen and Bar area which has had a complete refit and is looking good!

The pavilion is open


On Tuesday mornings 11-12 for tea / coffee


The licensed bar  is open on summer Sundays from  1pm – 5pm with a range of drinks on sale including soft drinks for children.


All welcome! Just turn up!

The field is in regular use for football and other activities. There are floodlights for evening use.  It is a public space for all to access free of charge. It features a well maintained children’s play area. It has been landscaped with attractive flower beds and paths and  there is disabled access and a small free car park.
