The Claygate Recreation Ground
The Recreation Ground was established in 1932, covering seven acres and is now used by tens of thousands of people every year.
The Claygate Recreation Ground Trust (CRGT) was set up in 1998 to manage and preserve Claygate’s Recreation Ground, adjacent woodland and clubhouse in an initiative set up between Elmbridge Borough Council (EBC) and the community of Claygate, initiated by the late Cllr Hugh Ashton.
The CRGT is a registered charity (number 1180381) and is responsible for managing the finances of the trust and planning and implementing continuous improvements so that the recreation ground remains a focal point for the whole community.
The CRGT is also a proud member of Fields In Trust - a national organisation set up to protect our playing fields and park areas for future generations.
The CRGT is comprised of 16 volunteer trustees, nine from represented organisations and seven locally elected representatives.
