The Fields in Trust is a deed of dedication obtained through Queen
Field's challenge. It is a project proposed by HRH Prince
William to celebrate his Grandmother's Diamond Jubilee. The aim was to
ensure that 2012 open spaces would be kept for perpetuity, to ensure green
spaces for the next generation and beyond.
An inspection of each site that applied for this deed of dedication,
was carried out, to ensure that there was access for all, and that
the space was looked after and would be maintained in the future.
Both Wolvey Wetland Reserve and
Wolvey Playing Fields were accepted, and both received
plaque and deeds of dedication, ensuring these two green spaces will be
safe from development for the future.
Wolvey Wetland Reserve Fields in TrustCairn and Time Capsule
Part of the conditions of gaining
Fields in Trust Status was that the Fields in Trust Plaque
should be visible on the site. At Wolvey Wetland Reserve, members
of Wolvey Environmental Group decided to display the plaque on a
purpose built cairn using reclaimed bricks found on the reserve. Plus to
further mark Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee a Time Capsule was buried beneath the cairn to be opened in 2062.

Fields in Trust also awarded Wolvey Parish Council the above
plaque which is on view at both ends of Wolvey Wetland Reserve.
