Welcome to the Playing Fields


Harlestone Association for Fitness & Fun (HAFF)


Formed in July 2006, a small group of local residents with young children set about improving the play equipment in Harlestone Playing Field.


We were supported by the Playing Field Association and the Parish Council.

HAFF launched with a sponsored fun run in the playing field and followed this up with a couple of events, a jazz evening and a quiz night.

These events along with some very generous donations raised £7000.

Play equipment is unbelievably expensive… however, we were lucky to receive grants from various organisations totalling £13,000.


Today the play equipment is looking superb! We spent over £18,000 refurbishing and installing new equipment and we are not quite done yet.

This year we will replace the climbing bars. The equipment is available for the whole community to enjoy.
