Warley Woods wins Green Flag Award for 6th Year.
Warley Woods is one of the very best in the UK – and that’s official. It is among a record-breaking 1,476 parks and green spaces that have been awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award. The award, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the sixth year running from Keep Britain Tidy. This Award recognises and highlights that local people are benefitting from a green space of the very highest quality. The Community Trust has been managing the site for 10 years now and everyone at the Community Trust is very proud of our track record of high standards.
Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to announce yet another record-breaking year for Green Flag Award parks and green spaces. A Green Flag Award provides national recognition for all the parks managers, staff and volunteers who, through their dedication and hard work, have helped to create these fantastic places for everyone to enjoy. Quality green spaces are a vital resource for communities and that is why it is so significant that we have given out more awards than ever before.”
We will be proudly flying our new 2014-15 Green Flag over the Pavilion on Lightwoods Hill shortly.
