2014 marked the centenary of the start of World War I. To commemorate the occasion, Fields in Trust are pleased to be delivering a nationwide initiative in partnership with Poppyscotland.

Centenary Fields aims to secure recreational spaces in perpetuity to honour the memory of the millions of people who lost their lives in World War I. Through this new programme landowners across the UK will be encouraged to dedicate at least one recreational space as a Centenary Field. This will commemorate this significant milestone in our history and create a tangible local legacy that will be valued by communities for generations to come. These spaces can include war memorial parks and playing fields given in memory of those who lost their lives, or other significant green spaces.
If you have protected a Centenary Field through us, you can hold a Centenary Have a Field Day.
