The playing fields at Ive Farm were managed by the SCORE complex in Oliver Road. They went bust and the fields are now in the hands of the Council, but they continue to lie derelict. Cllr. Bob Sullivan has tried to get the Council to allow the local running club to use the field, but the Council says it does not have any money to make the site safe for use. I will continue to push for the field to be made available to local sports clubs.
Interestingly there is £5.5 million due from the Olympic Authority for closing down Drapers Field but not a penny will go on refurbishing the playing fields.
