Cold Ashby Playing Fields Association have recently installed a new air conditioning heating system in the sports pavilion function room.  This new system will make the room more comfortable and quieter for our monthly social film nights, the weekly Monday yoga classes and for all those hiring the pavilion for parties and other functions.  An added benefit is that, should we have another hot summer, the system can cool and dehumidify the room making it more comfortable on those hot humid evenings.  This project was made possible thanks to support from the Winwick Wind Farm Fund administered by Northamptonshire Community Foundation.  

The unseasonably good February weather has brought out many families to enjoy the

playground.  This time last year we were facing the “Beast from the East” and the playground was naturally much less well used.  It was really good to count 14 people there at the same time on a February afternoon. This  shows how much it is used by the people of Cold Ashby and surrounding villages and is exactly why we worked so hard to raise the funds to build this facility of which we are very proud. The playground is free to use ... but it does cost money to maintain.You can support the ongoing maintenance of the playground for £1 per week through the Daventry District Local Lotto.  Please help us by going to https://www.local-lotto.co.uk/support/cold-ashby-playing-fields-association and signing up.
