Ambitious plans for a new pavilion were downgraded in 2020 and the plan is now to refurbish the pavilion and build a new tea-room. For details see the Pavilion and Tea-room page.
For ninety years, from 1921 to 2012, the land was the private property of the Whitelock family who generously encouraged its use for cricket. However in the latter part of this period several unsuccessful applications were made to develop the land for housing. In 2012 Whitchurch Parish Council acquired it on behalf of the community, adding a car park and a junior football pitch. The consideration in the deal was permission to build one house on the land.
The Village Green is managed by a Parish Council working group which includes representatives of the cricket club, the football club, the primary school and WoTHabs. The Terms of Reference for the Village Green Working Group have been published.
