An update from the organiser of the community bid for Udney Park playing fields, Jonathan Dunn.
The Udney Park Community Fields Trust has been set up with the sole purpose of acquiring the Udney Park Playing Fields and guaranteeing them as playing fields for community sport in perpetuity.
Below the Trust will sit an operating company. The appointees of the operating company will be chosen based upon the skillset of the individuals and with the aim of diverse representation.
This group will be highly energetic and motivated volunteers aiming to ensure that the fields and the pavilion are professionally run. Inclusivity will be a core principle.
The operating company will work closely with schools and community clubs to encourage and support accessible and affordable sports, leisure and cultural activities, and in so doing contribute to the health and well-being of local people.
