Country Fair 2017

Porlock's annual Country Fair took place on Sunday 6th August at the Recreation Ground and we once again had near-perfect weather for the event. The day saw a record number of stallholders and exhibitors playing host to an unprecedented number of visitors. We also saw a mind-boggling 59 dogs in the Dog Show and had more children's races than ever before.

Thank you to all of those who volunteered their time, as well as all our visitors, stall-holders and exhibitors who helped to make this year's fair such a happy and successful day,

Next meeting of the Porlock Recreation Ground Management Committee

The next meeting of the Recreation Ground Management Committee will take place on 18th October 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.

A boules court is planned for 2017 providing planning consent is granted.

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 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 £15000.  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.
