Long awaited village facilities near Dunmow, which have been 15 years in the making, will be officially opened at the weekend.

The residents of Flitch Green are being invited to celebrate the new playing facilities on Saturday, May 13, with a fun run also taking place.

The new facilities now consist of adult and junior football pitches, a cricket square and pavilion, a multi-use games area, a children’s playground, a community hall and associated parking.

The fun run, a fundraiser for Flitch Green Academy, will take place on the new playing field which, along with all other facilities, is now owned and managed by the Flitch Green Community Trust.

A mini-run, 1k and 5k race will take place from 10am and participants can walk, jog or run, with the course both pet and pushchair friendly.

The event is sponsored by the Flitch Green Co-op and Premier Crew Hospitality.
