Celebrate the Jubilee; ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE.

THE summer of 2012 is a fantastic time for celebration in the UK as people look forward to both the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Many communities are looking for ways that they can join in the excitement and celebrations and national charity Fields in Trust have a great solution.

The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is a Diamond Jubilee legacy programme operated by Fields in Trust and supported by Asda.

Together Asda and Fields in Trust are safeguarding 2,012 playgrounds, parks and pitches all across the UK. These newly protected Queen Elizabeth II Fields will then be celebrated with Have a Field Day community events on the Jubilee weekend and over the rest of the summer.

Fields in Trust have provided a Have a Field Day Toolkits for organisers of events on all Queen Elizabeth II Fields full of helpful tips and ideas on how to plan a successful day. In May, Have a Field Day organisers will also receive a fun pack of bunting, flags, rosettes, badges, banners and much more to help stage a really special event.

Alison Moore-Gwyn, chief executive of Fields in Trust, said: "The Diamond Jubilee is an opportunity for communities to come together and we hope that people have a wonderful time at their local Have a Field Day celebrations.

"And, once the bunting has been packed away and the celebrations are over, the community will continue to benefit from the protected Queen Elizabeth II Fields for generations to come."

Paul Kelly, External Affairs director, Asda, said: "The Have a Field Day events are a great way of celebrating the achievements of our programme with Fields in Trust and the outdoor spaces we have safeguarded.

"We're pleased to be encouraging our colleagues to get involved and help plan their local Have a Field Day events in celebration of the great summer of 2012."

Councils across the country have nominated over 1,0 outdoor spaces to be protected as part of the challenge so there should be a Queen Elizabeth II Field holding a Have a Field Day celebration near you.

Get Involved. Visit and see which QEII Fields near you are holding Have a Field Day events. Spread the word and go along to the day with friends and family.
