MarchamCentre is the name for the new community
facilitiies which are planned for the Anson Field in Marcham. It will include a
village hall, a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), a redesigned football pitch and
cricket pitch, and a new junior football pitch. The facilities have been 3
years in the planning and are jointly funded by the Anson Trust, Marcham Parish
Council and generous donations by local landowners. The project received
outline planning permission in September 2016, and detailed planning permission
in November 2017.
We expect to start work on the site in April 2018, with a view to finishing in the autumn of 2019. The whole site will be managed by the Marcham Community Group which is a charity that is democratically controlled by the local community. MCG will set up three sub-committees to run the facilities one for the village hall, one for the playing fields and MUGA and a third committee to manage the finances.
