The Woolton Hill boules court is now up and running.

East Woodhay Parish Council has built a 12m by 9m court, surrounded by a wooden picket fence, at the bottom of the recreation ground after receiving s106 contributions from Bloor Homes following the 60-house Meadowbrook development in the village.

The court surface is made from a material that’s compliant with boules competitions and can be used in all weathers.

Council vice-chairman Paul Hurst encouraged all the parishioners to brave the cold weather and get out and start using it.

He said: “We’re delighted with the end result.

“The contractors have done a splendid job – it looks good, it’s in the right place and it’s managed the drainage challenges.

“We’ve now communicated that it’s ready to be used and we’ve invited people to get out there and purchase their boules and we’ve started to circulate the rules of boules.

“We’re telling people to get out there and start using it.”

The council now plans to add benches and a table tennis table to the recreation ground, as well as more gym equipment.

This will be a ‘full body’ multi gym, consisting of a leg press, cross trainer, lateral pull down/shoulder press and a pull up bar.
