    Puriton Playing Fields & the Sport Centre





Puriton Playing Fields (reg. charity no. 296549) is the non-profit organisation that runs Puriton Sports Centre, the children’s playground and field at the village hall. It is administered by a seven-member committee, which meets on the first Monday of each month. The AGM is held in the spring, and new members are always welcome.

The most recent activities list can be downloaded here.

We have a function room/kitchen (ideal for private parties and other events) and a sports hall, as well as a number of smaller rooms for hire. As you can see from the photograph, the centre makes an ideal wedding reception venue.

To make a booking, or to arrange a tour of the facilities, please contact Sandra Tizzard (Puriton Post Office) on 01278 685355, or Judith Fletcher on 01278 685242, or
