New pitch approved

PLANS for a new sports pitch at Folly Field in Woodcote have been approved.

Woodcote Parish Council, which owns the site, plans to create a facility for different games including five-a-side football and basketball.

This will take up roughly four times the space of the existing basketball court, which it will replace, and will complement the outdoor table tennis table that was installed last year.

It will be funded by statutory contributions from the Oratory School, which has permission to build 25 new homes on its land at Chiltern Rise, off Reading Road.

Sam Peates, chairman of the Woodcote village green committee, said the pitch was unlikely to be built until next year at the earliest.
