RECREATIONAL AMENITIES

With the continuing escalation of the COVID 19 pandemic and the governments latest announcement, the recreational facilities are still open in the village including the Gala Field/Memorial Field, Jubilee Garden and the grassed area of the Play Park. Hook Parish Council kindly request that parents/guardians do not allow their children to use the play equipment due to the increased risk of infection transmitted from surfaces and we should respect the government guidelines regarding keeping a safe distance apart others - stay safe. 

 

Hook Play Park

High Street, Hook DN14 5PJ

Hook Play Park offers a range of outdoor play equipment for toddlers and juniors, including swings, multi-play units, small climbing wall and bike track and more.  5-aside goal posts are situated towards the rear of the park.  The toddler area is separated from the junior area with fencing and gate.

There are picnic benches, benches and litter-bins within the park. 

Hook Parish Council has been successful in securing amounts of funding via the Tesco Bags of Help, Goole Fields Wind Farm Fund, Big Lottery Fund and Sixpenny Wood Wind Farm, which helped greatly towards the purchase and installation of new equipment for the Play Park, replacement of fencing and gate to the front of the Play Park, picnic benches and tree planting.

                

  

Hook Gala Field

Church Lane, Hook DN14 5PN

The playing field offers a green space accessible for children and young people to move around in safety - whether it be to play a game of football, a cricket match or a stroll around the field.

Trees are planted in the field via the Woodland Trust free trees pack. A path has recently been laid around the perimeter of the field, allowing pedestrians safer access to the amenity and adjacent Memorial Field and Contemplation Garden.


                      

 

Memorial Field

The Memorial Field was purchased by Hook Parish Council, with a view to using some of the land as an extension to the cemetery at St Mary's Church in Church Lane.  The Memorial Field is linked to the Gala Field by a footpath.

                     

 

 Contemplation Garden

Church Lane, Hook DN14 5PN 

The Contemplation Garden was built in the Memorial Field, adjacent to the cemetery at St Mary's Church in Church Lane.  St Mary's Church and Hook Parish Council funded the building of the Contemplation Garden, the Parish Council then secured funding via Tesco Bags of Help towards the cost of the seating.  The Contemplation Garden is available for anyone to sit and remember loved ones in the peaceful surroundings.
