This year Warfield’s Summer of Fun day took place at the Warfield Memorial Ground and a great time was had by all! Although the weather wasn’t perfect it didn’t stop any enjoyment on the many activities on offer.
There are still a few events taking place in August throughout the Borough, just turn up on the day. Why not take a picnic too!
Warfield Parish Council has a vacancy for a part time facilities caretaker at its well-used community halls. The nature of the role will require flexibility.

Working on your own, the position involves the general cleaning of our halls, liaising with users and the Parish Clerk, ordering consumables, co-ordinating the maintenance of lighting/heating/security systems and handyman duties as required. A DBS check will be required.

Some of our volunteers at Larks Hill on Saturday
We just wanted to thank everyone who turned up to our community litter picks on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March. We collected in total 38 sacks of rubbish, including recyclables, and a microwave, garden table, car steering wheel, headrest, bumper and tyre, a skateboard, child’s bike, advertising board, cone and a garden hose! The areas in and around Larks Hill, and around Tesco are looking much cleaner as a result.
