Clay pipes were installed to drain the football pitch that ran, north to south where the tennis courts now are.

The hedge and seat that ran down the east side of the ground by the road was removed and the ditch was piped and filled in.

The playground (swings and a slide) were moved from the east edge of the ground to the bottom of the ground, where it now is.

The playground of the primary school was acquired, now forming the car park.

A shed for the tractor and gang mowers was built at the bottom of the ground.

Three air raid shelters, one of which had been used as an equipment and tractor shed, were demolished.
