Burwash Playing Field Association

Registered Charity No. 305191

Burwash Playing Field Association is a charitable organisation established to administer and manage Swan Meadow playing field, Ham Lane, Burwash.  The site is registered and maintained as a playing field in perpetuity.

The pavilion and sports hall on Swan Meadow playing field were constructed in 1998 at the same time as the two all weather tennis courts with the assistance of a Sports Council Lottery grant.

The playing field, pavilion and the children’s play area are maintained by fundraising and donations which the B.P.F.A. Committee administer and manage.

The tennis courts are currently maintained by agreement by the Tennis Club.

Burwash Fair on August Bank Holiday Monday is the single largest annual fundraising event in the Parish and is run by the B.P.F.A. to help meet annual costs and also enables other charitable groups within the community and national charities to raise funds for their needs.

The Officers and Committee of the B.P.F.A. are appointed by election at the Annual General Meeting each April for the forthcoming year and are usually trustees of the association.

Swan Meadow is the base for the village Cricket, Football, Stoolball, Tennis and Junior Sport clubs as well as the Bonfire Society, Youth Club, Horticultural Society and a number of other groups and is also used by Burwash C.E.P. School for sports day, games and out of school clubs.
