Jubilee Field Project Group

This page is intended to keep you informed on the progress of the Jubilee Field Project Group. Visit us regularly for updates.

This group was set up following the March 2017 meeting of Sway Parish Council to consider the offer made by the trustees of the former Sway Social Club.

Update 19 February 2018

Sway Parish Council today received a letter from the chairman of Sway Social Club formally stating that "the Social Club's members have decided that it should now investigate the acquisition of suitable premises in the village centre as its preferred option and would not at present pursue consideration of any development proposals at Jubilee Field".

We wish the Social Club well in its pursuit of other investment opportunities within the village.

Update 17 May 2017

Sway Parish Council has received a letter from the Trustees of Sway Social Club withdrawing the offer previously made to support the proposed Jubilee Field pavilion development and the creation of a MUGA.

Those individuals and organisations that have previously expressed an interest in being involved in the project will be contacted as soon as more information becomes available.
