Coven Playing Field Grant Application

We have received the fantastic news that Coven Playing Field Committee, in conjunction with the Parish Council, has successfully secured £48,000 worth of funding from Veolia Trust. Work to rejuvinate the park will commence early in the New Year. The Parish Council extends its congratulations and sincere thanks to all the committee members who have worked extremely hard to bring the project to fruition, not only with the grant application but also by organising many fund raising events during the year. Coven people will benefit from this fantastic facility for many years to come. Well done to everyone involved!
