Local Organisations and Facilities

Thornborough has a number of active clubs, associations and organisations. All of which welcome new members and support from the community.

Sir Harry Moore Sports Field
Thornborough Parish Council bought the Sir Harry Moore Sports field for the village in 1999 from Sir Harry Moore for the use of the village in perpetuity. A volunteer workforce of local people built the sports pavilion.

Thornborough Cricket Club uses the sports field throughout the summer.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times on the sports field.
 Thornborough Playground

The playground on Nash Road in the heart of the village is for the younger children (under 12 years). The land for the playground was donated for the enjoyment of local children by the Hodges family. It was refurbished in 2017. The refurbishment was funded jointly by Wren’s FCC Community Action Fund, Thornborough Parish Council, and donations from village residents.

Stanley the Snail is the playground guardian. He is always on duty making sure the children are having fun and keeping safe.

Thornborough Cricket Club

Thornborough Cricket Club is a small, friendly, family-oriented village cricket club fielding 2 Saturday teams, playing in the South Northamptonshire Cricket League (SNCL).

We have undergone a period of investment in the last 2 years with a new Fixed, full-sized artificial practice net, which is open for members, a Mobile practice net / cage which can be moved onto the wicket and 2 x Sight Screens.

Introducing Allstars, Dynamo’s and Junior cricket coaching sessions on Friday evenings from June to August has proved very popular with +75 youngsters (5 to 13 years) regularly attending.

We have had great success in attracting new players and an upsurge in membership in the 2021 season, but always welcome new players of all abilities.

For further information please contact John Osborn on j.osborn019@outlook.com for further details.

Thornborough and Coombs Woodland Trust

The Thornborough and Coombs Woodland Trust was established in 2015 to preserve and enhance 168 acres of green space within Thornborough parish known as Thornborough Community Woodlands and Coombs Quarry.

The area is fully enclosed and separated from main roads and farmland by clear boundaries to provide many well signposted walking routes, which makes it a large open space that is unusually safe, particularly for dogs and children.

The Woodlands are funded entirely by its users and grant funding. Full details of the facility and how you can help by contacting us at admin@thornboroughwoods.org.uk
