We look after the day to day maintenance of the Playing Field at Diptford Cross. There is a hard tennis court which we are hoping to resurface, play equipment, picnic tables etc for the use of the general community. We always welcome new volunteers to help us look after this valuable resource. Tel: 01548 821186 Email
