The Centenary Field

The Centenary Field was purchased in 1994 to mark 100 years of Frampton Cotterell Parish Council.  Trees were planted by local school children as part of Forest of Avon initiative and Bluebell in (2012).  The wheel was installed to mark the area’s industrial past and the village beacon to mark the Millennium.

It was purchased with the aim of providing a tranquil recreational area for all parishioners to enjoy.  The grass cutting plan shows the grass cutting regime performed in order to achieve this and the tree management plan shows the annual management of woodland areas.  The field has become the venue for the Frampton Festival usually held during July; this was first held in 2012 to mark the Silver Jubilee.

Did you know that nestled away in the trees at the Centenary there are some natural play areas? You wont see any metal here, just stepping stones varying in size made from tree trunks. These encourage imaginative play and promotes children to engage with nature.

Community Orchard

The community orchard is taking shape. Although in the very early stages, we hope this orchard will bring delicious fruits for generations to come.
