The Gorefield Playing Field Association was formed at a public meeting in the early 1970's when the village first bought the playing field from a local farmer and landowner.
Some years later it was decided that it would be good to have an Amenity Centre and so a small group was set up to follow this up. As a result of the hard work of many residents of Gorefield over a period of many years of fund-raising a sum of money was raised in readiness for the construction of a suitable building.
But over the years the cost of such a project increased out of proportion to the income from fund-raising. Eventually a compromise was agreed which would combine the facilities of a new pavilion with a new community hall. Applications were made and finance was generously granted by the Lottery Fund and Sport England.
The Playing Field Association is a registered charity (No. 1051382) and exists to manage the provision, maintenance and improvement of the playing field, community hall and pavilion for the Parish of Gorefield.
The Community Hall and Pavilion, situated a few miles from the Town of Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, was opened by Jake Humphrey in June 2013 with 2 days of celebrations and events on the playing field. The building now provides a hall for community use and a pavilion for the Soccer Teams to play locally. They are currently looking to increase the number of teams by encouraging youngsters to take part.
Bi-monthly committee meetings are held to discuss the general running of the Hall & Pavilion, the Playing Field and the organisation of events and fund-raising schemes.
