Playing Field

Hempstead playing field has a small variety of childrens' play apparatus including ropes, swings and a football area with goalposts.

The field was the Bowling green before WW2 and then someone kept geese on it during the War.

The village playing field was developed in 1974 when the parents of the children in the village took up mowing the grass and tending to the hedge. In the 1990’s fund raising events were organised, including two dances in the Village Hall.
