Managed by: Trustees of the Five Ashes Village Hall.
The playing field at Five Ashes village hall extends to an area of about 1.6 Hectares (4 Acres). It is generally flat and people are regularly seen walking the perimeter of the field for light exercise. Completion of the perimeter circuit will record about 1000 steps. Along this route is a display of indigenous trees and information boards explaining their benefit to wildlife.
