Redbridge Mayor unveils Centenary Fields plaque

by gwynethdeakins on 16 December, 2017

Redbridge’s Mayor, Cllr Linda Huggett, today unveiled a plaque at Wanstead Rugby Club in Roding ward, commemorating the fact that its grounds have been designated as Centenary Fields.

This designation is awarded by a charity and has a legal status meaning that the grounds must be used for recreational purposes in perpetuity.

The name Centenary Fields commemorates those who died in World War I – twenty-two members of Wanstead rugby club died in that conflict.  They and thirteen others who died in subsequent wars are remembered on another plaque on the clubhouse.

This year Wanstead – the Herons – celebrate their 125th anniversary and are flying high in their league.  Today they beat Epping by 36 points to 10.
