Please remember that the facility is not provided by the Council. It is owned and managed by a charity (AHSRA) paid for through fundraising and income such as rental or donations.

To ensure that everyone in our community enjoys the facility safely and in consideration of our neighbours and wildlife there are a few guidelines that we ask visitors to follow:

Guidelines for Use:

  • Children should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times
  • The outdoor facilities, including the children’s play areas and boules court may be used at any time – other than pitch areas of the Playing Field if hired
  • Football teams and any other groups are able to hire either of the pitches for exclusive use for practice or organised matches Field Contact / Rental
  • Anyone wishing to use the field for any organised group training (with 5 attendees or more) must first seek approval from AHSRA before any training starts
  • Other personal training or fitness services sessions are allowed free of charge but sessions are limited
  • There should be no placing or fixing of any lighting or structures
  • There should be no use of objects or cordons that mark out an area to restrict general access or imply exclusive use

Note: When an AHSRA community event is taking place usage guidelines may not apply and access to the facilities, including the car park, playing field and perimeter path will be restricted

General:

  • Please take your rubbish home or use the litter bin provided
  • Please look after the natural environment
  • Please treat equipment, gates, benches etc with care
  • Please always be considerate of our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum with no amplified music
  • Barbecues, camping stoves or open fires are not allowed
  • Motorised vehicles of any kind (unless used as a mobility aid) may not be used
  • No flying of drones or model aircraft
  • Fireworks and Chinese lanterns are not permitted
  • Only local community information may be displayed

Parking:

  • The car park has a limited number of spaces and is only for use by individuals whilst using the facilities available at the Playing Field
  • There is to be no overnight parking
  • Please do not park on Ashton Lane as it can cause a hazard
  • We ask that you do not park on any pavements around the village and always park considerately

Dogs:

  • As this is a children’s play area dogs should be kept on a lead and under control at all times and are not allowed on the Playground or the Playing Field (even when on lead)
  • Owners are asked to keep their dogs either on the public footpath or on the perimeter path (The non-public footpath section of the perimeter path is unavailable for dog walking when large events are taking place)
  • Always clean up after your dog and use the council provided dog waste bins, just outside the gates on Ashton Lane or Whitegate Lane

Note: The facility is monitored by CCTV. Incidents and anti-social behaviour (including evidence of drug-taking) will be reported to Cheshire Police
