In a record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award, as the scheme marks its Silver Jubilee, Radlett’s Phillimore Recreation Ground is one of 2127 celebrating success today.
Today (October 14) Aldenham Parish Council is raising a Green Flag Award at Phillimore Recreation Ground.
The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.
Phillimore Recreation Ground joins parks and green spaces as diverse as the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, Woodhouse Park in Peterlee and Chiswick Old Cemetery in London.
Commenting on the news, Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Phillimore Recreation Ground worthy of a Green Flag Award.
“To meet the requirements demanded by the scheme is testament to the hard work of the staff and volunteers who do so much to ensure that Phillimore Recreation Ground has high standards of horticulture, safety and environmental management and is a place that supports people to live healthy lives.”
The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
In celebration of this year’s announcement, Green Flag Award is asking buildings and monuments around the UK to #GoGreenForParks today.
