|Whatton and Aslockton Playing Field Trust
(Registered Charity – 1135385)The Playing Field was first used for cricket in 1897. In 1974 Aslockton Parish Council and Whatton-in-the-Vale Parish Council (‘the Parish Councils’) leased the field for use as both a sports facility and part used as a children’s play area.
|In 1994, with the aid of a big-lottery grant the Parish Councils purchased the freehold and in May 2006 entered into a Deed of Trust with the National Playing Field Association ensuring that the Playing Field would remain a recreational facility in perputuity for the benefit of residents of Aslockton and Whatton-in-the-Vale.. The Deed of Trust effectively created the Whatton and Aslockton Playing Field Trust with the Sole Trustee as Aslockton Parish Council and Whatton-in-the-Vale Parish Council.
The Deed of Dedication is available for download below:
|In 2006, the Trustee delegated the day-to-day management of the Playing Field to the Playing Field Committee.|
|In March 2009, the Play Equipment Project was completed. New play equipment covering the whole age range group from toddlers to teenagers has now been installed.|
