The Creech Party in the Park (PIP) event was nominated in the Fields in Trust (FIT) awards.  FIT protect open spaces all across the country to make sure that outdoor spaces are safeguarded forever. Creech St Michael Recreation Park is one of these protected places.

The Party in the Park event was shortlisted in the “Best Have a Field Day” category  following the success of the day on 11 July which saw over a 1000 people enjoying the fun packed line-up which included drama, dance and sport displays, music, family games, reptile handling, petting zoo, donkey rides, archery and train rides.

The awards ceremony took place at Lords Cricket Ground in London on 2nd December and two members of the organising committee, Mina Guest and Jo Morrison, attended. The award was presented by BBC sports and news broadcaster Ore Oduba – who even tweeted the PIP team after the event.
