Olympic legacy fund provides vital protection and investment for playing fields
Communities across the country yesterday started bidding for a share of £2 million to protect and improve their local sports playing fields.
The National Lottery investment is on offer in the latest round of Sport England’s Protecting Playing Fields fund to enhance local playing fields or create new sports pitches.
109 projects have already benefited from a total of £4.8million thanks to Protecting Playing Fields, including the creation of a new playing field in a Devon village where locals previously had to make a 16-mile round trip every time they wanted to play football.
