Five Broxtowe Open Spaces Retain Green Flag Award

Five Broxtowe open spaces are celebrating after retaining their Green Flag awards.

Bramcote Hills Park, Colliers Wood, Moorgreen, Alexandrina Plantation/Sandy Lane, Bramcote, Brinsley Headstocks and The Old Church Tower, Bramcote are all celebrating once again retaining the prestigious Green Flag Award.

This year with Covid19 restrictions the sites were assessed by ‘‘Mystery Shopper’’ judges experienced in the management of Green Spaces. All the sites came out with very favourable reports reflecting their popularity as people have stayed locally during the Covid 19 lockdowns.

The role the Friends Groups and the Community play in helping to manage and develop these sites was seen as very important as well as the high standards achieved during very testing times.

The Green Flag Awards recognise and reward the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag is a sign to the public that the space boasts very high standards, is well maintained and has good facilities.

Chair of Broxtowe Borough Council’s Environment and Climate Change Committee, Councillor Helen Skinner said: “Our Green Flag sites are amongst the most popular Green Spaces in the Borough with very important environmental qualities and we are delighted to be celebrating the Green Flag Awards.”
