Sports & Recreation

The Green

Outside the school and church is The Green.  This is a recreation ground for the public to use. New playground equipment was installed in 2009 with a grant from AVDC and WREN.

In 1935, a fund was set up to provide a village hall, money being raised through donations and fetes, but before enough was raised the fund fell dormant. Various attempts were made after the war to raise more money, but the fund was still far short of the required amount as building and land prices had both soared. It finally proved impossible to reach the desired figure, so the trustees were allowed in 1978 to spend the money on the clearance of an area of common land near to the church and the school for use as a village green and playing field, with swings and other play apparatus for the children of the village. The Green is an asset of Westcott Parish Council.  All repairs and maintenance are undertaken by the Westcott Parish Council.
