Duke’s charity scheme will honour war heroes for ever
HUNDREDS of parks will be protected for ever to honour the millions who lost their lives in battle thanks to the Fields In Trust charity’s Centenary Fields programme. The initiative was launched by the Duke of Cambridge in July 2014 to coincide with the centenary of the start of the First World War. Coventry’s War Memorial Park, where the Duke launched the campaign, includes a striking 90ft war memorial.
It is a space used by many people each day, but it also commemorates those who died in the Great War.
While the protections have been undertaken over the last four years, they will last in perpetuity to ensure the places will always remain as living spaces of remembrance.
