Recreation Ground

The Recreation Ground is owned and maintained by the Parish Council.

There is a play area with swings, slide, climbing frame and other play equipment. There is also a football pitch and a cricket ground.  There is also a picnic and bench area where you can sit and admire the fabulous views of the countryside. The football pitch and cricket ground are available for use by the parish unless being used at that time by those clubs who hire the ground. Dogs are welcomed on the Recreation Ground on a lead and dog fouling must be cleared up immediately.

The Cricket ground is currently hired by Astwood Bank Cricket Club as there is no dedicated cricket club and any local players wishing to take part are welcomed by the Cricket club.

The football pitch is suitable for under 13’s and is currently hired by Feckenham Boys club for use for their matches and training.

The pavilion on the recreation ground has been replaced by Hanbury Parish Council in 2019 in a joint initiative with Astwood Bank Cricket Club and with a generous donation from Wychavon District Council community legacy scheme.  The pavilion is available to hire for children’s parties and small groups.

The Parish Council are looking into the provision of a multi-use games area on the Recreation Ground – for 2024 which could incorporate a 5 a side football and tennis facility. They are currently reviewing the play area as well.

The new Pavilion is open and available for hire. In the cricket season, it is home to Astwood Bank Cricket Club most weekends and a couple of evenings but out of season it can be hired out between the hours of 09.00 and 22.00 any days of the week. It has two changing rooms with shower and toilet in each plus there is the Community Room which can cater for a maximum of 30 adults/children. It is a bright and calm room with a wonderful view over the recreation ground and the wooded hills
beyond and has a small kitchen and an accessible toilet.
Practice Nets are being considered for use of cricketers and locals alike.
