Update: Save Kingsmead Field

Private Eye

The Save Kingsmead Field campaign now has national press coverage! The magazine Private Eye has picked up on it in their column 'Levelling the Playing Fields'.  The article is on page 31 of the new edition (29th June) entitled 'Canterbury Tale'.  There's also a good little cartoon.

 Village Green Update

The campaign has received 110 completed Village Green questionnaires.  They are aiming for 200 by Sunday, 8th July, so that they can submit their application to Kent County Council the following week.  If you have used the Kingsmead Field for informal recreation at any point over the last 20 years and are happy to fill in a form, please let them know.  Just email campaign leader Sian at She will email you the questionnaire and maps, or send them by post if preferred.
