Free Easter crazy golf in Bishop’s Stortford

Children playing crazy gold
East Herts Council is inviting Bishop’s Stortford residents of all ages to put their golf skills to the test over the Easter holiday.

The pop-up crazy golf course, situated on the site of the former Charringtons car park, will be open for play for three days starting Thursday 4 April, from 10am to 4pm each day. No booking is required.

Playing the nine hole course is free, but donations to the East Herts Chairman’s chosen charity, Isabel Hospice, will be very welcome, either in cash on the day or via the website

East Herts District Councillor, Sarah Copley, who is also a Bishop’s Stortford BID member and the town’s Deputy Major, said: “We’re committed to driving footfall into the town and making effective use of Charringtons before work starts to transform it into a vibrant community space.”

Councillor Calvin Horner, Chairman of East Herts Council, said: “Isabel Hospice cares for hundreds of people with cancer and other life limiting conditions across East Herts every year. I hope golfers will be generous in their support of this worthy cause.”

East Herts is offering the space free of charge to businesses which can offer ways of using it to the benefit of residents. Potential operators will need to take responsibility for maintaining site security, have full insurance for their activities and enter into a licence agreement with the council. Certain activities may be subject to planning permission or alcohol or entertainment licencing.
