Protection for special place

Thank you for the photograph in the South Downs edition of our treasured memorial playing field. This is one of the most

beautiful and tranquil fields in the county and I find it unbelievable that our parish council can even consider a concrete skatepark in this location.

I was born in Steyning and my children and grandchildren have grown up here enjoying football and cricket in the field and just being in such a special place.

I feel sure that with the formation of the Friends of the Memorial Field there will be many other Steyning residents who like me want to see this special place preserved from building.
