National Have a Field Day on Saturday 8th July to demonstrate public support for parks

Parks and playing fields are a well loved part of our local landscape and used by the whole community; but funding cuts mean these green spaces are under threat due to poor maintenance and development. To demonstrate just how much our parks matter, UK-wide charity Fields in Trust is encouraging all communities to celebrate their local green spaces on Saturday 8th July. The national Have a Field Day event will show the many different ways people use their public parks and why local communities value them so greatly.

The Fields in Trust Have a Field Day 2017 event is supported by the National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces, parkrun and 38Degrees each of whom are encouraging their networks of park users to join the celebration on 8th July.
