Concerns over loss of Norfolk playing fields, including Pinebanks at Thorpe St Andrew

A Norfolk charity has raised concerns over the potential loss of playing fields in the county - but has promised to help save two sites whose futures are uncertain.

The Norfolk Playing Fields Association has vowed to back the action groups looking to secure the future of the Pinebanks site at Thorpe St Andrew, near Norwich, and the football ground used for play and leisure facilities in the centre of Wymondham.

The association's chairman John Carrick said: 'I have played sport at both of these venues and it was my grandfather who was instrumental in securing the open space which doubles as a football pitch for the townsfolk of Wymondham – so both have particular meaning for me.

'We have nearly 300 member associations in Norfolk who we can help with grants and advice.'
