The New Green Centre

Located in the well-served village of Thurston, the New Green Centre provides the community with a place to meet friends, attend groups and sporting clubs, hold parties and gatherings as well as a place to provide annual events such as the annual Thurston Fun Run, Burns night, Christmas Fayre with Santa's grotto and much more.

The large parkland area boasts a beautiful conservation area, a children's playground and a multi-use games area with basketball hoop, soccer goals and a large open space for occasional fun fairs and car boot sales.

There are park benches to rest your weary feet and enjoy the beautiful surrounding or have a picnic on one of our benches.
