This committee meets every three months and is responsible for all recreation, sport, youth matters and related issues. It is responsible for all parks and recreation grounds in council ownership: Arlebury Park, Stratton Bates and Sun Hill Recreation grounds, Memorial Gardens and The Soke Garden. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend the meetings.
Committee members have recently inspected all of the parks and recreation grounds and noted where repairs are necessary and improvements would be appropriate.
Every recreational project undertaken by the committee has had the benefit and support from Alresford sports clubs and numerous organisations that use the facilities and we would like to thank them for their continued co-operation and assistance. Funding for improved playground facilities is largely secured from those undertaking residential development within the town. A key element of the work of the Committee is to ensure that such funds are spent for the benefit of children in the community.
