This year’s Ellerker Playing Fields AGM will be held on Wednesday28th April 2021 at 7pm. The PFC requires a minimum of 5 trustees, plus of course a number of volunteers, to ensure the upkeep of both playing fields so that these can be enjoyed by all those in our community. Two trustees have advised that they will be stepping down at the AGM which leaves the positions of Treasurer and Committee Member available. The PFC requires a Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and 2 other trustees as a minimum. All current PFC trustees are also open to stepping down so good time to consider joining the committee if you are interested.
Due to the current climate, we are unsure of the meeting details. Therefore in the same way as last year, we request that those wanting to attend please email . Please also confirm your intention to join as a trustee and in what capacity as this will help us in our planning. We will then email everyone before the meeting advising of the meeting details.

We have a meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 13th November at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. We’ve decided to run this as an open meeting, as there are a few discussion points needing input from other village groups and anyone else wanting to get involved.
The main point that springs to mind is co-ordinating the Village Christmas Event on 8th December (intended to be a collaboration between the Village Hall, Playing Fields and Church), but others include the planned war memorial bench, the removal of the cherry tree on the green and potential lopping of the trees behind the Village Hall
For all the helpers who volunteered to help with Summer Fayre & Beer Fest there’s an open meeting at Paddy Hall’s on Wednesday, 6th June 7.30pm – Sandy Croft, Todds Lane. Sophie Secretary – Playing Field Committee
If you have some time to spare on Saturday afternoon, 12th May please come along and help tidy up the playing field. We will gather at 2pm and will be cleaning the play equipment, as well as tidying up grass edges and overhanging tree branches.
