Bramcote Hills Park and Colliers Woods have retained their prestigious Green Flag Awards for their high environmental standards and well maintained facilities.

Bramcote Hills Park now celebrates 11 consecutive years as a Green Flag award winner, with Colliers Wood close behind on 9 consecutive awards.

Community Green Flags were also awarded to Alexandrina Plantation and Sandy Lane Local Nature Reserve at Bramcote, Brinsley Headstocks and the Old Church Tower at Bramcote.

Councillor Shane Easom, Chair of Leisure and Environment Committee said: “To retain these Green Flag awards is a credit to the fantastic parks and open spaces we have in Broxtowe and puts them on par with some of the best in the world.

“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and these awards celebrate the dedication that goes into maintaining the parks and green spaces to such a high standard.”

The Green Flag Awards is an international award, now into its third decade.

International Green Flat Award scheme Manage Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme.

“Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much green spaces matter to people.”
