The Fields in Trust organisation believe green spaces are good, do good and need protecting for good. Each year on the first Saturday in July, communities across the UK champion their local parks and green spaces with Have a Field Day.
Do you love your local park? Enjoy a picnic on Saturday 6th July and join thousands of others across the country enjoying their local green spaces.
Register your picnic and they’ll send you a free Have a Field Day pack to help with your planning. As well as an inspiration card they’ve included tree spotting and bug hunt cards as well as some bunting the kids can get involved with decorating! There’s also a couple of posters – why not let others know about your picnic and invite the community along!
Why Have a Field Day?
Fields in Trust was founded in 1925 and 85 years ago, in 1934, the first Playing Fields Day was held. In the time since they’ve protected over 2,800 parks and green spaces in perpetuity, but there’s so much more to be done.
Parks and green spaces are proven to help people stay physically and mentally well. They are an important tool to drive social cohesion, combat loneliness and build community spirit.
But parks and green spaces aren’t a statutory service. Once they are lost, they are lost forever. Join Fields In Trust in championing our local parks and green spaces and protecting them for people to enjoy in perpetuity.
