Funding of the King George's Fields

As part of Waitrose’s community charity campaign King Georges Field’s Trust has been chosen as one of the three charities for their November campaign.  This is a great boost toward helping with the upkeep of the fields and particularly Little Heath Play Area, the ongoing maintenance of which takes a great deal of money.

The Trustee continues to find additional ways to raise funds to assist with the upkeep of the Playing Fields which includes Little Heath Play Area – Ideas and suggestions from residents would be welcome.  Please contact the Clerk with your suggestions.
