“A massive well done and many congratulations on achieving a Green Flag Award for 2017.  This is great news and a fantastic achievement for everyone involved.

Share with the wider group of Friends and volunteers that assist in maintaining and improving the pond and allotments. I have a Green Flag for you which we can arrange to be presented in the near future.”

FOSP 2016/17 Annual Report

The Green Flag Award scheme celebrates the very best parks and green spaces – across the UK and further afield. Now in its 21st year, Green Flags fly over 1,700 sites, that’s equal to 64,300 Wembley football pitches in England alone. Sites are judged by green space experts, who volunteer their time to visit applicant sites and assess them against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability, community involvement and providing a warm welcome.

“These awards are a great recognition of all the volunteer hours and the significant amount of partnership working between many different organisations that make these areas some of the best maintained open spaces in the country.”
