Allander Park and Cloberfield open space, in Milngavie, are going to be protected by the council as Centenary Fields.

Run by national charity Fields in Trust, in partnership with Poppyscotland, Centenary Fields aims to protect recreational areas, parks and green spaces to honour the memory of those who lost their lives during World War I.

The national programme is a unique way to commemorate the centenary of World War I.

It gives land owners and councils the opportunity to create space to remember those who gave their lives during the conflict, but also to ensure that future generations have valuable green space to enjoy as a living legacy.

Centenary Fields protected through the programme can be war memorial parks or recreation grounds, memorial gardens, parks and recreation grounds that contain war memorials or other valued green spaces.
