Charity description

Manor Fields Association logo
The Manor Fields Association is a charity based in the Brampton and Ashgate area of Chesterfield. We maintain some ex-school playing fields for the benefit of local residents, providing facilities for leisure and recreation.

We are wholly funded by individual donations and can only continue to keep the fields free for everyone to use with your help. Please donate to support our cause and keep these beautiful fields free for everyone to enjoy.

Please head over to our website or Facebook page to join us as a member and you’ll be able to have your say in how the fields are used and run. Or if you would like a more active role you could join our Committee and help out with the day to day running of the fields.
