WINDLESHAM FIELD OF REMEMBRANCE ANNUAL MAINTENANCE APPEAL

WINDLESHAM FIELD OF REMEMBRANCE

(Management Committee)

REGISTERED CHARITY NO.305138

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE APPEAL

6th – 16th September 2019

 

We are asking for your help to fund the maintenance of the Field of Remembrance

The Field of Remembrance is a fantastic open space with the field, children’s play area, woods and pond and is enjoyed by a wide section of the community.  However, not everyone appreciates that this is not a council run facility, but is actually owned in Trust by Windlesham village, and as a result it is maintained by the village and funded mainly by public donations.  

The annual cost of maintaining the field is around £17,500 and includes grounds maintenance, litter picking, dog bins, PL insurance, essential tree work, and health & safety inspections.

In recent years the public funding grant has been reduced and the new WPC grants policy limits the maximum grant to £3,500 (including £2,000 pa cost of the dog bins).  The Charity is therefore more reliant than ever on public donations (as well as the subscriptions paid by the Football and Cricket clubs) to meet the cost of the basic maintenance of the Field, playground and woods.

If you have missed our Annual Appeal collector and would like to make a donation towards maintaining the Field, please complete the form below and send your donations to the Secretary (see address below).  

Please give generously to YOUR Windlesham Field of Remembrance
