This is the 4th year in the campaign to save Kingsmead Field! Against the odds, we have managed to secure a commitment from the Council to protect approximately 80% of Kingsmead Field. This is an amazing achievement considering the bleak outlook when we started.

In March 2015, we set up a Friends of Kingsmead Field group to work with the Council to manage the protected area of the field. A public consultation will be held in the autumn of 2015 to find out how local people would like to see the field enhanced.

The Save Kingsmead Field group will continue to push for the protection of the remaining 20% of the field. This section contains a woodland corridor which provides a wonderful wildlife habitat. Watch this space!
