Footballers on Bullfields with Bullfields Centre behind

For information on hiring the Centre please contact Mrs. Joanne Kenny, on 07879 861261

The Centre is open to young people up to the age of 21 years.  It was left in trust to the young people of Sawbridgeworth by Sir Arthur Cutforth in 1933 for the benefit of children of the parish of Sawbridgeworth in perpetuity.  The land comprises four and a half acres.

The field and Centre building is managed by a Management Committee appointed by and answerable to the Town Council. 

There is a good range of play equipment, catering for three age groups from the toddler to the teenager, much of which has been recently installed with grants from several organisations including East Hertfordshire District Council, the Town Council, the Network Fund, Awards for All and Stansted Airport fund.  This area of the field is very well used by all age groups and the new seating has been much appreciated by parents visiting the field with their children. Following consultation with the young people a chat room was recently placed on the field for the older teenagers.

There are two football pitches, one for the younger age group up to 13 years and the other pitch for those up to 21 years of age. Both boys and girls play their football on these pitches with the groundsman from the Sawbridgeworth Town Football Club giving his time on a voluntary basis to ensure their upkeep to a playable standard.

The Centre itself was mainly funded by East Hertfordshire District Council and is available to hire for activities for young people.  There is currently a Pre-school group using it in the day time with a Youth group, dancing class and Karate groups using the Centre in the evenings.  Children’s parties are popular at the weekends.
