THE community of Tilbury has given enthusiastic support to a campaign aimed at bringing the Daisy Field in the town back to life as a centrepiece for play, sport and other activities.

Local supporters of the park, officially known as King George's Field, have been inspired to step up their campaign in the wake of news that the recently formed Tilbury Town Board is looking for ideas to regenerate the town and has called on the local community to get in touch.

Local man John Smith has already promoted and highlighted the idea via the government’s ‘Have Your Say’ platform – and he has received dozens of messages of support and encouragement on there.

Looking at what investment in the Daisy Field could bring he writes: “A cafe, community hall with storage facilities to be available for all community group activities mothers and toddlers group meetings youth club hiring out for seminars and courses for the community and run by the community.

“We formed a community group three years ago called 633ds we have successfully established social football for the past two years run by volunteers which is free to all kids aged six to 16.

“We are now a ‘Community Interest Company’ and working with other groups in the community to achieve these goals.”
