2012 was the celebration year of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. With your help and engagement, we focused on celebrating it in fitting style!
The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge (known simply as The Queen Elizabeth Fields Challenge in Scotland of course), operated by Fields in Trust, is a fantastic campaign to protect outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of this great event.
There is still time to nominate a space.
From sports pitches to woodlands, children's play areas to gardens and bicycle trails to parks, the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is protecting a diverse range of outdoor spaces so there is something to appeal to everyone.
Whether you live in a dense city or the middle of the countryside recreational spaces are the heart of any community and the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge will ensure that these outdoor spaces are guaranteed for future generations.
Securing access to grassroots sporting facilities is particularly relevant given the other milestone event which took place last year – the London Olympics. What better way to mark the great success Team GB had?
The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge gives communities an opportunity to vote for an outdoor space in their area to become part of the scheme and be permanently protected as a tribute to the Diamond Jubilee.
