What will you do in 2018?
The great thing about a New Year is having a clean slate.
It’s a good excuse to try new things and meet new people. To make the most of opportunities and discover what life has to offer.
This year, at the Fieldgate we have an exciting new line-up of activities, sports, classes and clubs to give you plenty of opportunities to get the most out of village life.
Last year we secured our largest ever injection of funds into the centre from grant applications which enables us to invest in a new all-weather pitch and playing field drainage, and improving the building with new doors, windows and energy-saving measures.
We’re also excited to announce that the centre’s room hire is booking up fast for christenings, birthday parties, wedding receptions and more. If you are looking to hire a room for your own occasion, you can check availability on our website and give us a call on 01635 298 497 to book.
This January we are welcoming Acrobatic Dance and Tumbling by Lynden School of Dance to the Centre.
Clubbercise, joined the Fieldgate last year and is proving very popular. It’s a great way to burn off those extra calories, working out to classic old skool hits of the ’90s, noughties and today.
We also host bi-monthly Discos with music from the 60s, 70s and 80s and weekly Ceroc lessons.

The Fieldgate Centre is a community-run centre that depends largely on the support of volunteers. Funds raised from room and facility hire go to keeping this sports and recreational facility available for everyone of all ages to enjoy.
Playday is coming to the Fieldgate Centre! Instead of one big event in Basingstoke, this year B&D Borough Council is taking Playday out into the communities and it has asked us to support the campaign.
On Wednesday 1st August from 10am-2pm there will be lots of free activities to encourage play for children aged 4-12yrs. Some messy, some not so messy, some indoors and some outdoors – plus refreshments and music. So, put the date in your diary! All welcome – children must be accompanied by a responsible adult throughout the event.
Play day is a campaign that highlights the importance of play in children’s lives. On Play day, thousands of children and young people get out to play at hundreds of locally organised celebrations – from small-scale neighbourhood get-togethers to large-scale public events. Playday is coordinated by Play England, Play Wales, Play Scotland and PlayBoard Northern Ireland. www.playday.org.uk.
More details about how you can join in the fun will soon be on The Fieldgate Centre’s website and facebook.
