Who can spot the dragon in the photo’s?





Thank you Annie Umpleby for creatively assembling the dragon, we were sad to see him go up in smoke. Also many thanks to all those who volunteered on the evening.


We hope to repeat the event again in 2016.

The Halloween coffee morning raised £175, a fun morning with creative pumpkin carvings. Over 25 pumpkins carved. Lots of seeds and pulp composted!

















Children took part in fun games and our villagers had a cuppa in the colourfully decorated room! Lovely to see the children interacting with the villagers and enjoying each other’s company.

Many thanks to the volunteers without them it wouldn’t be possible. Also thanks for the kind donations of pumpkins, raffle prizes and the cakes!  Finally thanks to all the children who took part some of whom looked wonderful in their fancy dress.

Atherington Children’s Playing Field has recently been awarded £500 from the YMCA Cup for the Car Park fund. The South Molton Football Club sponsors the YMCA Cup Final which is played at South Molton at the end of the Football season each year. Any money raised goes to local charities and this year ACPF was successful with a bid. A sincere thank you from us all.

June 2015

Atherington Children’s Playing Field wish to express grateful thanks to South Molton Lions Club who have kindly donated £250. The money will be used to buy materials to enable us to fund the completion of the car park project which is expected to be completed by the Summer Fête on  4th July

Work has now started on the Cark Park area in the Playing Field and is planned for completion this summer. This has been made possible by two substantial grants from the Coastal Community Recycling Fund (£10,500 in February and £6,650 recently) plus a gift from Atherington Parish Council of £1,195; and an additional offer of £500 from South Molton YMCA Cup and £250 from South Molton Lions Club.


As usual, all of the preparatory ground work is being done by a group of volunteers to save money, but the Tarmacing will be done by a professional contractor, who is working closely with our team.

Without the generous funding from all of these groups and the ongoing support our local community, this project would not be possible.
