Welcome to Porlock Recreation Ground

Do you want to help run and improve the Recreation Ground?

The charity needs additional volunteers and trustees with the time and ability to help with the practicalities of running and improving the recreation ground. Trustees may fulfil a variety of roles, so please contact us if you are interested. In particular, the existing team would benefit from the addition of someone with plenty of time to get stuck into projects such as Pavilion development. Someone with experience in managing the design, procurement and fulfilment of construction projects would be ideal, as well as people who wish to get involved with practical maintenance and admin duties. If you are interested, please get in touch using the Contact Us form.

 Next meeting of the Porlock Recreation Ground CIO

The next meeting of the trustees will be held on Tuesday 15th October 2019, at 6.30pm in the Pavilion.

ABOUT THE RECREATION GROUND

Set in some 5.5 acres, Porlock Recreation Ground is without question the green centre of this popular Exmoor village. Situated in a conservation area and within easy reach of the entire village, the Recreation Ground contributes significantly to the social and leisure needs of residents and visitors of all age groups.

Facilities include a well-equipped children’s playground, 2 football pitches, a cricket pitch, floodlit tennis court & multisport court and a dog exercise field, as well as a large pavilion with a meeting and function room, kitchen, changing rooms, showers, disabled toilets and baby changing room.

The Porlock and District Bowls Club is situated beside the Recreation Ground.

The pavilion, marquees, football and cricket pitches are available for hire. You can check availability of the pavilion and pitches on our Bookings Diary page. Costs and how to make a booking are also on this page.

Tucked behind the pavilion is the peaceful Porlock Garden of Remembrance commemorating those who fell in both World Wars.

Porlock Recreation Ground CIO is a registered charity with the aim of preserving, maintaining and improving the facilities for the ongoing benefit of the village and local area.

The annual running costs for the Recreation Ground are around £15,000. It is funded mainly through the income raised at the annual Country Fair supplemented by rents and hire charges from regular and occasional users of the various facilities.
