Chute Pavilion & Recreation Ground

The village of Sherborne St John is lucky enough to have a great Pavilion and Recreation Ground available to all on the outskirts of the village on Vyne Road. 

These top facilities were built with special thanks to grant funding reeived from Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council, Hampshire Playing Fields Association, the Big Lottery fund, and County Councillor at the time, Keith Chapman.

Recreation Ground facilities


  • tennis courts
  • a couple of football pitches
  • a Play Park

Sherborne St.John Parish Council are delighted to announce the installation of older children's play equipment at the Recreation Ground in June 2022. This amazing project was funded by the Loddon and Test LEADER Programme and is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

Go take a look - we think you'll be impressed!
