North Town and Heron Wood Project

Ivy Fields in North Town is one of Aldershot's best kept secrets. Hidden away behind DIY store Focus, in the middle of an industrial estate is a small grassed area and an all-weather multi-sport caged area which goes by the unfortunate name of 'the mugger'! Over the last few months the area has proved to be a hive of activity with the Football in the Community scheme (FITC) teaming up with several external partners to make sporting activities available for all. Rushmoor Borough Council, The Wessex Housing group, The Gateway Fund, Connaught Secondary School, many local junior schools and Hampshire Police, in particular PCSO Oli Walker have proved invaluable with the formation and development of sessions at a venue that had previously seen very little community work being carried out.

This good work has been carried on with Soccer at Six and Seven pay and play evenings every Friday which started at the beginning of November.
