Essex Playing Fields Awards

Published: 26 October 2018

 Loughton Town Council is once again the proud recipient of a number of awards for the high standard of maintenance at its open spaces and play areas.


At last evening’s presentations in Chelmsford, Cllr David Wixley, chairman of the council’s Recreation Committee, received the following awards from Lord Petre, Patron of the EPFA, and Essex County Council Chairman, John Jowers: 

  • Overall winner of the Best Kept Playing Field for the Roding Valley Recreation Ground;

  • Gold awards for both the Newmans Lane and Westall Road play areas; and

  • Silver award for the Traps Hill play area.

These awards recognise the hard work of the council staff, its contractors and the volunteers who assist with the daily litter pickings.


We particularly thank the Grounds Maintenance Team at Epping Forest District Council for their endeavours that keep the large Roding Valley Recreation Ground looking tidy all year round.
