Protecting the parks that kept us going when the world stopped – Fields in Trust with Jamie Leeson, Fields in Trust

Wed, 30 Sep 2020 18:00

Cost: £5.00 Admin fee (kindly subsidised by Fields in Trust)

Local parks and green spaces were there for us when everything else changed. They were places to move, breathe, run and relax as well as being safe places to connect with loved ones. Parks will also be a powerful part of our recovery from the coronavirus pandemic but sadly they continue to be threatened with imminent loss. And once lost, a green space is lost forever. Fields in Trust's aim is to protect a park or green space within a ten-minute walk of 75% of the UK population, in perpetuity (in partnership with the landowner who retain the ownership, management and maintenance). Find out how the local council can play its part in helping to protect green spaces for good. The presentation will cover the following:

  • Is there enough green space in the local area?
  • Why protect with Fields in Trust?
  • Parks during a pandemic
  • Benefits of parks
  • Community involvement in parks and green spaces
  • Costs incurred with the Land Registry
  • Membership of Fields in Trust (separate to protection and optional)

HOW TO REGISTER FOR A WEBINAR REMOTE TRAINING SESSION

Thu, 01 Oct 2020 09:00

YLCA Remote Training Sessions:

Remote training sessions are completed by Go To Webinar, Go To Meeting and Zoom. Each training session is included in the Training Programme, with links to each session.

Registration:

It is essential that registration takes place prior to the day of the session commencing. Attendees MUST provide the Council they are from when registering for a training session. We ask that all attendees register 1 day before the date of the session. Once registration has taken place an email confirming registration will be sent to the attendee, a reminder one day before the training session takes place and another reminder one hour before the start of the training session. Please do notleave registering for a training session until the day of the training as there are occasions when we provide documentation, which attendees need prior to the session. Sessions can quickly get full so register as soon as possible, with approval of the council, to avoid disappointment.

Cancellation:

If you register for a training session, then realise that you are unable to attend, please go back in and cancel your registration, which will allow another person to take your place. We have some sessions that become full very quickly.

Arrival at the session:

Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the training session taking place to ensure any technical difficulties are resolved before the session commences.

Invoicing:

Invoices will be sent to the council after the session has been completed. Please ensure you provide the council details when registering.

Feedback:

Feedback on the session will be requested. We hope to receive constructive feedback, which will help us prepare for future training sessions.
