HRH The Duke of Cambridge introduced the evening with a video message mentioning the Guston Green project. Such is the momentum that this project and that of QEII Field, Lancaster Avenue Playing Field in Capel-le-Ferne, have created, that other parishes in the district have now been inspired to launch their own projects to improve their Fields in Trust protected Queen Elizabeth II Fields.  This ground swell of activity is exactly what we hoped the QEII Fields Challenge would create to benefit and engage local communities in improving sport, play and recreation provision.

The Duke’s video message and further photographs and information about the Awards can be found at the Fields in Trust website – www.fieldsintrust.org
