Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “This event promises to be a fun-filled day of activities for the whole family. It demonstrates just how important it is to maintain our public open spaces for future generations to be able to enjoy.”

Have a Field Day has been organised in conjunction with ASDA as part of their support for the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge. As a long-term remembrance of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, The Queen Elizabeth II Challenge invited people to submit nominations for green open spaces to be registered as Queen Elizabeth II Fields in Trust.
The challenge was to secure the future of 2,012 recreational spaces, preserving them for generations as places where people can play outdoors. The Walks is one of a number of green spaces in West Norfolk to be nominated as a Field in Trust.
