Have a field day
FIELDS IN TRUST, a charity that protects outdoor spaces across the UK, is calling for people to Have a Field Day and show support for their local parks on July 8. Green space is under threat from both development pressures and council budget cuts, so the initiative seeks to highlight the importance of local parks, playing fields and playgrounds for local communities.
‘Fields in Trust believes we should re-value our green spaces as resources that contribute to public health, mental wellbeing and community cohesion and not simply view them as a drain on council finances,’ notes the charity’s chief executive, Helen Griffiths.
