Information related to the North Luffenham Recreation Field – The Oval from the Parish Council.

Damage to The Oval from quad bikes

On Sunday the 31st two quad bikes were seen on The Oval. Permission to use a quad bike on council land, parks and private land requires permission of the council or the owner: no such permission has been given by NLPC, as trustee, for The Oval. Apart from being unlawful it is antisocial behaviour, particularly as it was near the children’s play area.

Unless a quad bike is registered and have front and rear number plates it cannot use a public road.

The incident has been reported to the police. If residents see this happening please contact the police: to speak to a member of the Rutland South designated neighbourhood team please call 101 or 01162 222222
In an emergency call 999.


The weather’s forecast to be fair, the ladies of Luffenham are busy baking summer treats and the ingredients for the jugs of Pimms are ready & waiting to be blended for you to enjoy a relaxing afternoon @ the Cricket Pavilion. Do come along and while away an hour, chatting to friends old & new whilst raising much-needed funds for our local Charity – The Rutland Food Bank.

Storm Damage on The Oval

If walking on The Oval that there is a large broken branch, assumed from the storm damaged, caught in a tree waiting to drop. This is right above the pathways through the trees at the back of the cricket club. There are possibly other tree affected. NLPC will be engaging a firm to clear the debris from the storm.

Oval Tree Inspection

The Parish Council has commissioned Rutland County Council to survey all of the trees on the Oval to review their health and ensure the safety of users of the Oval and adjacent householders.

Over the past few days the Forestry Officer from Rutland County Council has inspected all the trees on the Oval – we await his report which will be published on line in due course.
