Welcome to Speen Playing Fields

Speen has two playing fields – the main Playing Field located in the centre of the village behind the King William IV (ex) pub and Ridgley’s Field which is accessed from Moses Plat Lane.

We are very proud of our playing fields.  They provide vital open spaces in our village for people to use for recreation, sports and family fun and are a focal point for many of our community activities such as the village Fete, FunDay, Bonfire Night and the bi-annual Speen Festival.

Speen Playing fields are held in charitable trust for the benefit of the community, are managed by a committee of volunteers and supported through grant aid and fund raising.  We rely on charitable donations to maintain our playing fields and to purchase new equipment.

The maintenance and upkeep of the fields is also a community activity with many villagers helping out on our Spring and Autumn work parties carrying out maintenance jobs and installing new play equipment. These work parties are a fun community activity where we cut back trees and hedges, repair equipment, fix the pavilion and other miscellaneous jobs.  Outside of these work parties we invite those who may wish to help with maintenance to choose an activity from our maintenance list to carry out alone or with neighbours in their own time.
