The Lord-Lieutenant of Kent wishes to congratulate the two award winners from Kent who were successful in the Fields in Trust Awards Ceremony held at Lords Cricket Ground on 28th November, 2013.
Two Kent civil parishes within the Dover District were selected from nationwide nominations as winners of the following categories: Town and Parish Council Partner of the Year and Community Champion.
HRH The Duke of Cambridge introduced the evening with a video message mentioning the Guston Green project. Such is the momentum that this project and that of QEII Field, Lancaster Avenue Playing Field in Capel-le-Ferne, have created, that other parishes in the district have now been inspired to launch their own projects to improve their Fields in Trust protected Queen Elizabeth II Fields. This ground swell of activity is exactly what we hoped the QEII Fields Challenge would create to benefit and engage local communities in improving sport, play and recreation provision.
