Sapcote Recreation Ground Management Committee

The Sapcote Recreation Ground Management Committee (SRGMC) is a non-profit making registered charity. It is responsible, on behalf of the Parish Council (i.e. the Custodian Trustee), for the upkeep and management of all buildings and facilities within the recreation ground. Buildings comprise a pavilion, changing rooms, and equipment stores, plus football, cricket and croquet pitches. Childrens' play equipment is also sited on the recreation ground.

The modern pavilion contains a hall suitable for large meetings, parties and functions served by a kitchen and toilets with adjoining stores supplying tables and chairs. The changing room block, recently refurbished, has facilities for both home and away teams and for match officials. There is also ample storage provision for football, cricket and croquet equipment as well as grounds maintenance machinery.

The Committee levies hire fees for all league sports teams using its pitches, changing and shower facilities, as well as levying charges for the hire of the pavilion. The proceeds from these charges are constantly used to maintain and improve the grounds, buildings, facilities and equipment. The Committee meets once per month with representatives from the Parish Council and sporting teams in attendance. Apart from two paid employees (i.e. a caretaker/lettings officer and a cleaner) members of the Committee are all volunteers who work to ensure that the high quality of provision is maintained throughout.

The Committee is always delighted to welcome new members and/or interested parties to its meetings, which take place on the last Thursday of the month.
