Host an event as part of Have a Field Day on 8th July

Parks and playing fields are a well loved part of our local landscape and used by the whole community from pre-school children to retired adults. To demonstrate just how much our parks matter on Saturday 8th July Fields in Trust is encouraging all communities to celebrate their local green spaces.

Have a Field Day events across the country on 8th July will show the many different ways people use their public parks and why local communities value them so greatly.

With the clocks springing forward at the weekend, communities are now looking forward to getting outdoors and enjoying their local green spaces. Our recent research shows that local access to green space leads to people feeling healthier and happier – and becoming more active as a result.

So we invite park users across the UK to join us in celebrating and valuing our local parks on 8th July, to demonstrate how you #LoveYourLocalPark. There is no blueprint for how an event should look, however, with each Have a Field Day reflective of the local community the park serves.

All registered events will be able to access a downloadable toolkit with ideas to help run a successful community event. A pack of support materials will be available to those who include activities to raise funds for Fields in Trust's work as part of their day.
