Fields in Trust’s Development Managers will be participating in the County Playing Fields Association national conference next week. The confererence is a great opportunity to connect with others who share the same vision for the provision and management of our local playing fields and outdoor recreational spaces.
The County Playing Fields Association was formed in 1926 to campaign for safe places for children and families to play and practice sports. The Association brings together independent charities across the UK who share a core set of values and campaign for the provision, improvement, retention and community use of playing fields, children’s playgrounds and other recreational centres.
Fields in Trust and the CPFA both believe that outdoor recreational spaces are vital for healthy, active communities and create a more enjoyable environment in which to live.
