Rainton Recreation Association

Rainton Recreation Association is a registered charity who are committed to providing play facilities in Rainton. The children’s play park is a well-loved and well-used facility in Rainton which provides a space for children to be active and spend more time playing outside. 

Solely relying on donations to cover annual running costs of over £3,000 every year, the Recreation Association hosts fundraising events, social gatherings and children’s parties in Rainton’s Village Hall.

The first Sunday in June sees Rainton Recreation Association partner with Rainton Village Hall for Rainton’s annual Street Market & Fun Day

Rainton’s annual Street Market and Fun Day offers something for everyone – whether you enjoy browsing & shopping at the stalls, a walk around the classic cars & vintage vehicles or relaxing in the Village Hall with a cup of tea and slice of homemade cake. For children of all ages we have a treasure hunt around the village, face-painting and lots of kids games, activities & competitions to have a go on.


Each year we welcome stall holders who’d like to come and take part and sell their goods. Crafts, gifts, jewellery, toys, plants, books, clothing – in fact anything (legal!) you want to sell - we'd love to see you. At just £10 a stall – it’s a bargain!
