Fields in Trust QEII Challenge

15th October 2011

Fields in Trust QEII Challenge

The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, operated by Fields in Trust, is a new campaign to protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year.

The Challenge gives local communities an opportunity to vote for an outdoor space in their area to become part of the scheme and be permanently recognised as a tribute to the Diamond Jubilee.

Christian Harris (Head of Amenity Services) is putting together a range of initiatives to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year, and as part of the celebrations has proposed six spaces in Crawley to become part of the scheme.

In selecting these sites, Amenity Services were keen to choose open spaces which are less well known, as a stimulus to these becoming more prominent and hopefully receive more public interest. It is also hoped that such recognition may lead to the setting up of their own ‘friends group’, if one does not already exist.

Grattons Park (in our area) has been chosen as one of the sites. The full list is as follows:-

  1. Broadfield Park, Broadfield
  2. Grattons Park (part of), Pound Hill
  3. Northgate Avenue (behind playing fields), Northgate
  4. Waterfield Gardens, Bewbush
  5. Waterlea Flood Meadow, Furnace Green
  6. Willoughby Fields, Langley Green

All these spaces contain a mixture of open space, trees, rivers and ponds and are great places for wildlife and nature. We hope they will become just as important to the local community as some of our better known parks like Tilgate and Goffs Park.

To secure these important places for generations to come they need public votes, and CBC will be publicising this national scheme later this month. Voting is due to start on 18th October and lasts for four weeks.

Please go to www.qe2fields.com to see the nominations and cast your vote. Should sites receive significant interest, they will be dedicated.

Voting opens on Tuesday 18th October for four weeks, so cast your vote then to see our very own Grattons Park permanently recognised as a living legacy in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee next year.

We launch hunt for Crawley Community Champions

1st December 2008

We launch hunt for Crawley Community Champions

Do you know a community champion that deserves a great big thank-you?
This week the News is launching our Crawley Community Champions competition in tandem with Crawley Police and ASDA.

We want you, the reader, to nominate individuals or small groups who have gone the extra yard to be good neighbours and citizens.

We want to reward those whose acts of kindness make life more pleasant for everyone else in the town.

Maybe you know someone who works hard to keep their street clean and beautiful, a committed but unknown community group, a kind soul who helps an elderly neighbour with the shopping, or someone who works their socks off for Neighbourhood Watch.

Their regular good deed could be anything at all – so long as it helps others.

We want to find the unsung community heroes who have not previously featured in our paper. Once we have received a range of nominations, Sgt Darren Taylor of Crawley Police and the News team will pick the most impressive six as finalists.

The winner will then be voted by the public on our website www.thisiscrawley.co.uk.

Those who come first, second and third will win gift cards that can be spent in ASDA’s store on Pegler Way on goodies for the upcoming festive season.

Both the nominator and the Crawley Champion they are nominating must live or work in Crawley.

Please email editor Crawley news with –
1) Your name, street and contact number.
2) Your Crawley Community Champion’s name, street and contact number.
3) Why you are nominating this person.
Please leave ‘Crawley Community Champions’ in the subject line.
