Meetings are held approximately quarterly in the Peel Park Pavilion when members of the public can attend and have their say during Open Forum. Details of the meetings are shown on the notice board situated in the entrance to the Meadow and agendas are published on this website at least 3 working days prior to the meeting.
The pedestrian entrance from Sword Close, allows pedestrians to enter the meadow without having to negotiate cars also entering the meadow.
The children’s play equipment is well used.
The meadow has picnic tables and seats along its perimeter.
The meadow has a barn which is predominately used for storage but also for the Clanfield Cricket Club who base the Meadow as their home and they maintain the cricket square independently from the Trustees.
The area is well used by dog walkers and has recently opened its own Facebook page ( by a regular user of the Meadow) dog walkers are urged to ensure that they pick up after their dogs and use the bins provided
