It was great last week at the London Sport Engagement Event at The Oval to share a platform with Caroline Brooks (London Sport), Sarah Ridley (London Marathon Charitable Trust) and Helen Griffiths (Fields in Trust) to discuss the challenges facing London’s playing fields stock over the coming years. The session provoked much debate and one thing became abundantly clear. At a time when London Sport is aiming to get a million more people active by 2020 it is illogical that the very places where this activity takes place are under threat.
