Kirkby and Field Lane needs a strong community which provides activities, clubs and interest groups for all ages
Through the loss of various buildings such as the Kirkby Sports Centre, Kirkby Swimming Pool, the Kirkby Suite, Kirkby Library, and the Sedburn Centre, our town now has less facilities than it did 20 years ago. This has had a major effect on the culture, health and wellbeing of our communities with less places to congregate and meet to enjoy leisure and sports. This is damaging to community spirit and is detrimental to all residents.
1st 4 Kirkby is currently in the process of reclaiming some of the remaining facilities to enable community activities and encourage community cohesion.
