APLA (Recreation ground)

Alne Parish Leisure Association (APLA) is the body responsible for the Alne recreation ground and sports field. It is a UK registered charity (No 516566) and was formed in 1983. Up to date details of the finances and trustees of APLA can be found by going to the Charity Commissioners’ website - click here - and entering the APLA charity number.

For the story of the 25 years of APLA from 1983 to 2008 and how the field came to be purchased, and the recreation and sports facilities established (A5 booklet, loads of colour photos, lists of everything that happened, £5), contact Robert at [email protected]

The main sports facilities on the recreation field are tennis, basketball, netball and football. There is also an extensive children's play area, a skate park, fitness area and wildlife area. For more information on Alne Tennis Club (which is part of APLA), click here.

APLA requires a high level of annual funding for the maintenance, insurance and renewal of the recreation field, the play equipment, the skatepark, and the courts. We achieve this through Alne Street Fayre, which is the annual fund-raising event for APLA.

Alne Street Fayre will take place in 2021 on Sunday 05-September. Rated by The Times Newspaper as one of the Top 20 UK Family Days Out, more details can be found at www.alnestreetfayre.co.uk
