Queen Elizabeth Playing Fields designated

Malinslee Playing Fields has been successful in becoming part of the Olympic legacy whilst also celebrating the Queens Silver Jubilee in becoming 2 Queen Elizabeth II designated Playing Fields.
The Playing Fields will now be known as the St Leonard’s playing field (south side of playing field) and Prince George’s playing field (north side of playing field) in honour of the new Prince (whose 1st birthday was last week). The names for the fields were chosen by the local community.
The designation of the playing fields has been made by the ‘Fields In Trust’ who have designated over 1500 sites across the country to provide protection to the Playing fields which are an important community resource and are crucial to promoting individual and community well-being and ensuring the future of outdoor spaces across the area
Cabinet member and ward councillor for Malinslee Shaun Davis said “Our Playing Fields are hugely important to our community and we are delighted that these are protected as Queen Elizabeth II Fields. Protecting the local sports pitches gives sports clubs and individuals the space to develop sporting talent. The Fields in Trust programme is one of legacy and celebration and we’re looking forward to getting our community together to celebrate in a big way!”
Leader of Telford & Wrekin Council and ward councillor for Malinslee Kuldip Sahota said “I think it’s fabulous that these playing fields are now protected in perpetuity and will be enjoyed by generations to come. “
Saturday 26th July (12-3pm) will see the launch of the newly named fields with a variety of free community activities which are part of Malinslee Urban Day. Activities include a professional BMX stunt team (Skills On Wheels), a huge variety of inflatables, Rodeo Bull, BMX coaching / racing by Wrekin Riders, Climbing wall, demonstrations by Telford Amateur Radio Society and performances by Dawley Musical Theatre Group and Hashtag to name but a few.
