The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge
In order to commemorate the Queens Jubilee the Parish Council is securing a legacy for our residents: we have registered the Recreation Area at the Centre @ Halton as a Queen Elizabeth II Field. Many Town and Parish Councils have already nominated sites to become Queen Elizabeth II Fields and you can see these on the website www.qe2fields.com.
1. What is the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge?
The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is an exciting new landmark programme to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, with The Duke of Cambridge as its patron. It will create a permanent, tangible and relevant legacy from Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
2. What will be the result of the Challenge?
The Challenge will permanently protect a network of 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities across the UK by way of a ‘Deed of Dedication’ between the landowners and Fields in Trust (FIT) – the operating name of The National Playing Fields Association.
3. What are the benefits of being involved in the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge?
Becoming involved with the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge will provide:
* A permanent and tangible legacy for our local residents.
* We may have the opportunity to access funding exclusively for Queen Elizabeth II Fields, to continue to improve our local facilities.
* The chance to be involved in a national event to celebrate HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – We’re hoping to repeat the Happening @ Halton** – in association with Fields in Trust’s principal partner ASDA, with a free support package for the organisers;
* A Queen Elizabeth II Field plaque for our site as a reminder of its protected status.
**ARE THERE ANY VOLUNTEERS OUT THERE WILLING TO HELP ORGANISE THIS EVENT?? Please contact Maureen for more information about volunteers.
