Titchmarsh Playing Fields – the Play Area

Dear all. On the Playing Fields Committee, we are responsible for the upkeep and improvement of the Pavilion, Playing Fields and Play Area. Recently, we had a ROSPA inspection letting us know that the safety of some items of Play Equipment had slipped below acceptable standards. This, along with our own inspections and concerns from members of the village, has meant that we have had to remove the swing seats. I very much hope that this will be a temporary measure as we are looking into replacement parts in the short term and at a much needed revamp of the whole play area in the longer term.

I am sure that you understand that funding has much to do with this and we are exploring ways of raising funds through grants as well as our own events. If you would like to volunteer to help us in any capacity (from committee member to assisting at one of our events), we would very much like to hear from you. You can get in touch through chair@titchmarshplayingfield.org.uk.

We are holding our AGM in early September (date TBC) and would love to see you there if you can spare the time. With many thanks for your understanding.

Paul.

Titchmarsh Road Races 2017

Popular Running Event back with a bang!

Thank you so much to everyone who was involved with and/or supported the Titchmarsh Running Races this year.  It was fantastic to see so many competitors out in the sunny weather running in the 3k and 10k races – in fact, we had the biggest ever combined field in the history of the event. Whether you were a racing snake up the front or just managed to make it around the challenging course, we were delighted to see you and have you compete.  Official results are now available on the Village Website.

The true Titchmarsh Spirit was also out in force with plenty of support from villagers and spectators along the course.  We have already had plenty of very positive feedback from competitors and from our official event adjudicator which is great to hear.  However, if there are any points you would like us to consider for future events, please feel free to get in touch through the PFA website (www.titchmarshplayingfield.org.uk); we will be having a post-race meeting in the next few days and will consider all suggestions.

Finally, a massive thank you to all the volunteers who helped us organise and manage a very successful event – we really couldn't do it without you all.  Thanks must also go to the event sponsors Bulley Davey Chartered Accountants.  We have provisionally raised £1900 for the Playing Fields Association which will go a long way towards keeping things running.  

Planning has already started for the 2018 event (provisionally being held on Sunday 13 May 2018) so we hope to see you all back on the roads for that one.

 

Titchmarsh 3k Fun Run and 10k Road Race

Sunday 7th May

Back again this year on Sunday 7th May are the ever popular 3k Fun Run and 10k Road Race.  The 3k Run starts at 10am and the 10k Race starts at 11am.  As in previous years, registration will be in The Clubroom with car parking available at the Playing Fields. The events will be on a closed road course following the familiar route out along the High Street towards Bidwell Cottages with a turning point before Clopton Church for the 10k race.  The start/finish line will be on the High Street near The Wheatsheaf Pub.  Refreshments will be available in The Clubroom and the Village Shop will also be holding a BBQ.

Registration WILL close at 15 minutes before each race to allow an on time start. To avoid disappointment, it is highly recommended that you register in advance (and elect to receive your race number in advance) for either race at www.titchmarshplayingfield.org.uk where further details on the event are also available.

This popular event attracts many competitors and spectators to the village and we are aiming to have an incident free event that is accessible and enjoyable to all.  To keep it as safe as possible for our competitors, a Road Closure Notice will be in place along the course.  The Road Closure will be in place from 0945-1230 during which time vehicle access to the High Street will not be possible.

For people who park their vehicles on the High Street and in order to keep the course free of obstacles for our competitors, would you please ensure that your vehicle is moved off the road by 0930 on that day?  The Car Park at the Playing Fields will be available for your use if you need alternative arrangements.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause; however, it will allow our races to take part on a closed-road course, free from obstructions.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this closure, please contact Paul Fletcher on: chair@titchmarshplayingfield.org.uk

With many thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
