Queen Elizabeth II Field Jubilee Green

FIT plaque with bunting

At the pre-school picnic 2012 Cllr Robert Jones and Mayor Cllr Charlotte Walker jointly unveiled the Queen Elizabeth II Field in Trust plaque.  You can just see it in the photo under all the lovely bunting made by the children.

The Fields in Trust campaign was to protect 2,012 public spaces for community use for ever by placing a convenants on the space protecting it for the community.  This campaign is also to mark the Queens diamond jubilee and the Duke of Cambridge is a patron.

Cllr Jones had identified the scheme and Bradley Stoke Town Council had registered Jubilee Green as a possible site .  The early stages of the process involved the public voting for their favourite space on the Fields in Trust website, a campaign that we helped with and thank you to all of you who voted for it.

Jubilee Green successfully achieved the status and we invited Cllr Jones and Mayor Cllr Walker to unveil the plaque and Cllr Walker renamed the space 'Queen Elizabeth II Field Jubilee Green'.

We are really please the green has achieved the status as the land is owned by South Glos Council and is rented to Bradley Stoke Town Council.  The space is now protected under the convenants and will continue to be used by the community for ever more.
