New Village Map
There has long been a need for a comprehensive map of the village showing house names in Upper Broughton. Brush off courriers with a casual 'down there on the left'.

New play equipment on Cross Green

After seemingly months of waiting new swings and slides have been installed on Cross Green.
There is a new 'toddler' swing, new double swing and new slide along with all the approved safety equipment and standards that have to be adhered to. 
These facilities have been brought to you by Upper Broughton Parish Council, so a big thanks to them.

Upper Broughton Art Show update
At an extraordinary outdoor meeting of the Art Show committee on the 19 May 2021. Discussions centred around questions such as, would all restrictions be lifted? Will the new variants take off? Might people still be cautious of crowded indoor events? After summing up all these and many more considerations it was decided to move the show to mid-May 2022.
We are also looking for a new, enthusiastic team of people to come along and re-invigorate what has been a highly successful formula for the last 37 years. See more on the UB Art Show Site

Upper Broughton Tennis Club (UBYSC)

Spring Tennis… it's nothing like Monkey Tennis.

The Upper Broughton Tennis Club or UBYSC (Upper Broughton Youth & Social Club) has been in constant use since the early 1950's. Now in the 2020's the playing surface, lighting, club house and organisation have kept pace with modern expectations.

Any day of the week, any time of the year and now well into the evenings with the assistance of flood lighting there is seemingly always a game being played. A coaching session being run, singles, doubles, tournaments, desperate lobs being hoist, grudge matches to be settled, serves that were definitely IN, calls that were so clearly OUT.

The club is a great facility to have in such a small community and should be supported by all of us.
