Our play areas are well equiped and during 2010 the village set about complete re-vamp of the Challis Green recreation area. A new Multi-games Area, zip wire, b.m.x trail, and climbing zone were added to the refurbished swings, climbing net, slide and rocking horse. Many families from around south Cambs come to enjoy the play area.
The Parish Council would like to thank the Barrington Archive and Diane Alderson for the majority of images on this website.
