WFor and Fields in Trust

HRH The Duke of Cambridge (Fields in Trust President) launched the Centenary Fields programme in 2014. The Trustees are delighted to announce that Windlesham Field of Remembrance has been recognised as part of this programme and, alongside it's status as a Remembrance Field, has now been dedicated as a Centenary Field.

Delivered in partnership with The Royal British Legion, this is a fitting way to commemorate the World War I centenary and importantly, protects the Field of Remembrance in perpetuity for the benefit of the future generations of Windlesham.

We will be marking the dedication at the end of the annual Remembrance Day service on Saturday 11th November with the local branch of the Royal British Legion. Please feel free to come along and mark this occasion with us. Tea and coffee will be available before and after the ceremony.

Green Flag Community Award Winners for the second year in a row!

The Windlesham Field of Remembrance in Windlesham, Surrey has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world.

The field is among a record-breaking 1,797 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a Green FlagCommunity Award – the mark of a quality park or green space. This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards and is beautifully maintained.

The Windlesham Field of Remembrance was established in 1950 when it was purchased by public donations. The woodland was purchased in 1987 and the site now totals 18 acres in size. The Field is still owned by village and is managed by a dedicated committee of volunteer trustees.

Chair of Trustees Suzanne Sharman said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the second year running. “We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Windlesham FoR to such a high standard. The award means a great deal to the Windlesham Community who continue to be responsible for the funding, management and maintenance of The Field"

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme. “Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much parks matter to people.”

Flying the Flag for Windlesham

The Trustees of the Windlesham Field of Remembrance are thrilled to announce that the field has been awarded a Green Flag Community award for 2016/2017.

The Green Flag award scheme was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country. The Green Flag Community Award recognises high quality green spaces in the UK that are managed by voluntary and community groups. The Award is part of the Green Flag Award® scheme, the national standard for quality parks and green spaces.

Chair of Trustees Suzanne Sharman attended the awards ceremony in Walthamstow at the end of last month to accept the award on behalf of Windlesham residents and trustees. We are all extremely proud of the award, even more so since the visit by the Green Flag Community Award judges took place just four days after the travellers left the field so we only had a few days to return the field to great condition.

The judges commented that WFoR is "A lovely site providing an attractive feature for the village and preserving a beautiful landscape and wildlife. Keep up the good work. A site greatly deserving the green flag award”
