In a record-breaking year Phillimore Recreation Ground is raising its prestigious Green Flag Award
Today, Aldenham Parish Council is celebrating after receiving a Green Flag Award for Phillimore Recreation Ground 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 Phillimore Recreation Ground 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.
“We are really pleased to have been awarded this for the 2nd year running. It has been a great team effort which has been supported by the Council.”
Commenting on the news that Phillimore Recreation Ground 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 Phillimore Recreation Ground worthy of a Green Flag Award.
Phillimore Recreation Ground is a vital green space for the community in Hertfordshire. This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
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.
