Castle Cary and Ansford celebrate the completion of its new community project! Following years of dedication and hard work from a group of volunteers, the Fairfield Project is now complete with a pump track, adventure trail, sensory garden, meadow gym, a network of hard pathways and more. This community resource is for old and young alike. Fundraising for this project began over 20 years ago, however, it wasn’t until 2014 the land, known as Fairfield, became available to buy. Local volunteers formed the Fairfield Project team in 2015 and with the support of both Castle Cary and Ansford Councils got to work actualising the dreams of generations of young people in the local area. The project has come to fruition with the help of many sponsors who include: – Sport England, Tesco Bags of Help Scheme, Emily Estate, Brue Valley Rotary, Delaware Veterinary Services, Castle Cary Use Less Share More Group, South Somerset District Council, plus some anonymous donors. To celebrate the opening of the Fairfield, Castle Cary Town Council and Ansford Parish Council are holding a free community event on the Fairfield on Saturday 1 September 2018 between 3pm and 8pm. There will be live music, food and drink for sale, equipment demonstrations, a bouncy castle, a dog show and more. Michael Eavis, of Glastonbury fame, will be guest of honour and will officially open the Fairfield. Bring your picnic chairs and rug! Everyone is welcome to join in celebrating this momentous occasion and try out their skills on the pump track, adventure trail and meadow gym!
