Having a Field Day!

Dodington Parish Council "had a field day" on Friday when they officially declared Kelston Close as a Queen Elizabeth II "Field in Trust" so that it will remain Playing Fields permanently. They ran a sports-themed event with children from Abbotswood Junior School, Culverhill School, and Phase Five Pre-SChool Playgroup. 

The field was officially "opened" by Dame Janet Trotter, the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire. Two volunteers from Asda brought lots of freebies - thank you! Dodington Football Club provided very popular football activities, and Sports 1st ran lots of different sporting games.
