Craigmyle Glebe Ltd owns and manages Woldingham’s playing fields, which lie at the heart of the village both geographically and in terms of its everyday contribution to village life. There are facilities for all ages. Apart from the cricket, soccer and tennis clubs, the pavilion hall and kitchen are available for hire and are particularly suitable for small meetings and children’s parties. See our hiring information below.
For those who simply wish to enjoy the open environment, there are seats around the Glebe, and for young children, a well equipped playground.
The Directors’ Report and Accounts for 2016, which will be presented for approval at the AGM on 16th May 2017, is available here.
83rd Annual General Meeting of the Glebe
Tuesday 16th May at 7:30pm
in the Cricket Pavilion, followed by Refreshments
All members of Craigmyle Glebe Ltd, and Glebe users, are welcome to join the trustees at our forthcoming AGM. Members will be receiving the Notice and Agenda by e-mail, and the Directors’ Report and Accounts for 2016 are available on the Glebe’s pages on the village website, but please e-mail me at if we have inadvertently missed you off our list.
The accounts show a small surplus of £358, which is a big improvement on the £2,399 deficit in 2015. Since the 2016 AGM, we have completed the refurbishment of the kitchen in the Cricket Pavilion, and have again needed to spend heavily on tree maintenance. We also added a Facebook page as a way of keeping our members and users up to date.
Become a member of The Glebe
Our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WoldinghamGlebe/) has received dozens of ‘likes’ but we would love to turn those ‘likes’ into donor-members! Newcomers and younger families are especially welcome so that we continue to represent the whole community: we ask for £25 per household per year – more if you feel able – but please visit the Glebe pages on the website for more on how to become a member. As a charity acting in perpetuity, it would not be appropriate to run at a deficit repeatedly, so we do need those member-donations coming in to help us maintain this important village amenity.
For more information on how to become a member please visit the Support the Glebe page.
