The Parish Council also own the Bill Bailey Memorial Field. It was gifted to the village in 1946 by Mrs & Miss Jackson, the daughter and grand-daughter of William Bailey. It was given in both his memory and that of Wilfred Deburier the fiance of Miss Jackson who lost his life over Hamburg in 1943, 4 days before their wedding day. The field is maintained by the Parish Council in the memory of all the parishioners who also lost their lives in the 1939/45 war.
