In a record-breaking year, Ford Park is raising its prestigious Green Flag Award
Today, Ford Park Community Group is celebrating after receiving a Green Flag Award for our Park as one of 2208 UK winners.
The award is the International quality mark for parks and green spaces.
After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that Ford Park has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.
Speaking about the award Jill Salmon CEO of the Charity that manages the park said ”We are delighted to have awarded Green Flag status again - for the eighth consecutive year. This award recognises all the hard work and commitment of our staff and volunteers. They are here come rain or shine, ensuring Ford Park is safe and attractive for the community and maintained to an award-winning standard”
Commenting on the news that Ford Park has met the Green Flag Award standard, Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Ford Park worthy of a Green Flag Award.”
