Football Pitch in use again

Glad to see Tunstead’s football pitch in use again.

Tunstead Football Pitch


The Tunstead Village Hall Committee had worked hard getting the football pitch ready, and making the facilities COVID-19 secure. It was a lot of hard work, but worth it.

This Sunday (2nd August 2020) saw the Barracks FC host a friendly game against Sporting Rackheath. Plenty of substitutes, but everyone got a game. The Barracks won 3-1.

The series of pre-season games continues next Sunday kick off at 10:30 am.

A Message from PC Gibbs

Our Beat Manager PC Tom Gibbs has received a number of complaints relating to traffic matters in recent weeks in Tunstead and Ashmanhaugh. He will be conducting patrols locally to target these concerns which include excess speed and obstruction of the pavement by vehicles. Residents are requested that they and their visitors refrain from obstructing the footway so as to cause pedestrians and wheelchair or buggy users to have to enter the road to pass.
