The next few years sees some momentous events across the UK. HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2014 Commonwealth Games which will be held in Glasgow.The Queen Elizabeth Fields Challenge, operated by Fields in Trust, is a fantastic new campaign to protect outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of these great events.
From sports pitches to woodlands, children's play areas to gardens and bicycle trails to parks, the Queen Elizabeth Fields Challenge will protect a diverse range of outdoor spaces ensuring that there is something to appeal to everyone.
Whether you live in a dense city, town, village, or the middle of the countryside, recreational spaces are the heart of any community and the Queen Elizabeth Fields Challenge will ensure that these outdoor spaces are guaranteed for future generations.
Securing access to grassroots sporting facilities is particularly relevant given the sporting milestones taking place in 2012 and 2014. What better way to mark the greatest sporting shows on earth?
The Queen Elizabeth Fields Challenge will give communities from the highlands to the coast and cities 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 these historic events.
