Protect Mapledurham Playing Fields

We, the undersigned, demand the protection of Mapledurham Playing Fields (MPF) for the sole purpose of playing fields and recreation ground. We support the refurbishment of the Pavilion as part of this very valuable local resource. We completely reject any proposal to use any part of MPF for a school, housing or other development that will cause loss of land.

PLEASE PUT YOUR POST CODE IN THE COMMENTS BOX (just in case we have to prove that signatories are beneficiaries of the Mapledurham Playing Fields Trust)
