The recreation Association 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. All village organisations are encouraged to nominate a representative.
Dunton Recreation Association is a registered charity (no: 300025).
The pavilion is open on Tuesday mornings 11-12 for tea / coffee. It is also available to hire for meetings and private functions.
MAY 2018: 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.
In addition to the 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. This year it was the turn of the Kitchen and Bar area which has had a complete refit and is looking good!
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.
