Please nominate Cuthill Park!

Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge

Nominate your favourite outdoor area

Bluebells growing wild
2012 marks Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and to mark that occasion Fields in Trust are launching their Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge. This is a new campaign to protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the UK as a permanent living legacy of the jubilee.
From sports pitches to woodlands, children's play areas to gardens and bicycle trails to parks, the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge will protect a diverse range of outdoor spaces ensuring that there is something to appeal to everyone.

The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge gives communities an opportunity to vote for an outdoor space in their area to become part of the scheme and be permanently protected as a tribute to the Diamond Jubilee.
Nominations need to be in by 31 August 2011, at which point East Lothian Councill will use them to work out East Lothian’s favourite outdoor spaces.  They will then submit these to the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge organisers, who will make the final selection.  You will be able to follow all this from links on our web site at the above address.

Please, please take a few seconds to send that email nominating Cuthill Park as your favourite outdoor space to

Work Day Survey

It would be really helpful if you could indicate your availability by completing the survey (link below).
