Welcome to Burwash Common Pavilion
Building a Happier, Healthier Community
Hall, Licensed Bar, Car Park,
Playground, Exercise Equipment, Field, Goalposts
Many years ago, (pre-Pavilion), a survey of villagers showed that what they most wanted was - a footpath round the playing field.
We believe that now is the time to do it!
A 1.5m wide (5 ft) tarmac footpath around the perimeter of the fields, flush with the surface.
See below for why we chose tarmac.
Apart from the section near the Pavilion, most of the path will be invisible from here.
At the same time, we want to greatly improve the drainage - increasingly wet summers are restricting use of the whole field
We want to make the fields fully accessible to everyone throughout the year. Wheelchair users, families with buggies, joggers, etc., etc.
The drainage will enable more sports groups, formal and informal to use the East end area.
We have some funds but will be looking for grants, and doing fund raising, with a target for completion September 2022.
The estimated total cost is £70,000
Please send us a message to say why you support (or don't - all views welcomed) this project - this will help us obtain grants.
And look for news on fund-raising or tell us your ideas - by message or on Facebook
It's limited in what you can access (it has parental controls set up) but it's perfect for zoom, emails, etc. if your own connection has been lost. It's called The Pavilion and the password is Thepavilion
Our thanks to the Parish Council for sponsoring this facility.
The hall, with its plain white walls and excellent natural lighting is ideal for you to host a parallel onsite and online meeting, class, etc.. Exercise, art, whatever, you can do it from here. Contact us to book.
We welcome help with serving at the bar and/or keeping things running smoothly by collecting the glasses and restocking the shelves. It's voluntary but a great way to meet new friends and/or obtain work experience.
Go on. You know you want to sit on the mower, pottering round and round, taking in the view, avoiding the family, putting off all the things you meant to do. It's free, stress free and far more relaxing than the even the most expensive cruise.
Hedge cutting, ditch digging, playground cleaning, whatever you want.
They're a friendly bunch. Meetings about 6 times a year are usually enhanced by the bar being open. It can result in hard work if you decide to take on a particular role but the sense of achievement is well worth it.

The Playing Fields and Pavilion were established after WW2 as a permanent memorial to the men and women of this parish who gave their lives in service of their country. The new Pedestrian Access Gate will serve as an additional memorial to those who fell in WW1 but can we do more to enhance the area in ways that pay due tribute to the sacrifices made by our forebears? Ideas welcome but you can also help by using Amazon Smile in your dealings with the evil empire. Just click on the link above and all will become clear - we hope! Or search for Burwash Weald & Common in the Amazon Smile search box.
If you choose us as your nominated charity when shopping with Amazon Smile, they will donate 0.5% of your purchase to our Memorial Fund. This fund includes the old Century Club, Friends Donations and monies raised by the After 8s and others towards the permanent memorial gate and, with the church, we are also setting aside funds to ensure that the War Memorial in the churchyard will be kept in good order. The Gate will be finished if and when the weather allows our builders to do it (it uses lime mortar that is very sensitive to inclement weather.)
We provide a beautifully set venue (a village hall) for the community and clubs, support groups, exercise classes, receptions, parties, meetings, etc.
We have a licensed bar, a kitchen and fully accessible facilities.
In addition, the Playing Fields are also used by many different sports groups and we welcome enquiries.
