History of the Crick community sports centre
A village needs survey in 2001 identified a shortage of sports facilities in Crick. Crick Parish Plan covering the period 2002-2007 subsequently devised by the Parish Council ambitiously sought to establish a new sports complex to meet the needs of the population. In June 2004, the Parish Council bought a large area of land from the County Council which was surplus to requirements following compulsory purchase orders to facilitate the construction of the village bypass. Prior to the purchase, planning permission was sought and granted for a change of use of part of the land from agricultural use to sports field. Crick Community Sports Centre now occupies this land with the remainder of land bought now forming Jubilee Wood.
The Crick Community Sports Centre is a collaboration between various local sports club and the parish council to create quality sports facilities that can be used by all members of the community.
