Malinslee Playing Fields get designation under Jubilee scheme

3 February 2014
Malinslee Playing Fields get designation under Jubilee scheme

Playing fields in Malinslee have become the third location in Telford and Wrekin to be safeguarded by a special scheme set up as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The playing fields are following in the footsteps of the Telford Town Park Arena and Stirchley Playing Fields by gaining Fields In Trust status.

Fields In Trust aims to safeguard at least 2,012 outdoor recreational spaces for future generations.

The Town Park Arena was successful in applying back in 2011, Stirchley in 2012 and now Malinslee Playing Fields has also been successful.

To celebrate, Telford & Wrekin Council is launching a competition for residents to come up with names for the two fields ahead of the official dedication and community opening event, which is to take place in the spring.

The winners will be invited to the official opening as special guests and will also receive a Telford & Wrekin Council annual leisure membership of their choice.
To enter simply email your suggested name and contact details to or contact your local ward member or Great Dawley Town Council. Entries should be submitted by the 21st February.

Councillor Liz Clare, cabinet member for Leisure Services and Culture, said: “It is fantastic that a third green space in the borough has received Fields In Trust designation and I am delighted for local residents that their playing fields will be safeguarded as a result.

Councillor Shaun Davies, chairman of Great Dawley Town Council, said:
“The playing fields are a valuable green space and host community events such as Malinslee Day.

“The BMX track provides facilities for young people and the playing fields are used for both informal recreation and sport. I would encourage local residents to take part in the competition to name the two fields.”
