Reading the first land title forming the Recreation Ground, this Indenture made 26th febuary 1920 beween,

Harry Whitworth Hall, of Benington Park Esquire
Arthur Francis Bott. Gentleman.
Francis Frederick Foster. Butcher.
William Mills. Clerk to the Holy Order.
Frederick William Bracey. Engineer.
David Warner. Labourer.
Arthur George Pearman. Farmer.

These seven names formed the Indenture, forming the Recreation Ground. They were very Charitable people, having very similar views, as the young men and women of the Charity Trust, like today’s men they come from all walks of life, to achieve the same goal, and that is to have a Recreation Ground that Benington will be proud of once again.
