Green Flag® Submissions 2011

Keep Britain Tidy - Green Flag Award

 

Green Heritage

Back in the office, Monday, 31 January 2011 was a very busy day – it was the deadline for Green Flag® submissions.  Green Flag® is very important to us ‘Parkies’ as it’s the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces throughout the United Kingdom.

Green Heritage is a more recent accreditation for us and is only “given in recognition of achieving the required standard in the management and interpretation of a site with local or national historic importance”.

So, where in Wolverhampton are our awards …

Four of our sites have previously been awarded Green Flag® status:

West Park, Wolverhampton

West Park Conservatory, WolverhamptonFirst awarded Green Flag® in 2008.

West Park Conservatory, Wolverhampton (Early 1900's)

West Park, followed this by achieving both Green Flag® and Green Heritage Site Accreditation in both 2009 and 2010.

Bantock Park, Wolverhampton

Bantock Park, Wolverhampton As with West Park, Bantock was first awarded Green Flag® in 2008.  Followed by both Green Flag® and Green Heritage Site Accreditation in both 2009 and 2010.

Pheonix Park, Wolverhampton

Phoenix Park, WolverhamptonAfter extensive development, and funding through the All Saints & Blakenhall Community Development (ABCD), New Deals for Communities, together with Parks colleagues – Phoenix Park was awarded Green Flag® for the first time in 2010.

This was cause for much celebration, particularly amongst the Friends of Phoenix Park and other community members.

St Peter’s Gardens, Wolverhampton

The site of St Peter’s Gardens successfully achieved Green Flag® status in both 2009 and 2010.  St Peter’s is extremely important to Wulfrunians as it’s a reminder of our heritage and history.

We’ll keep you updated on how our submissions went later on in the year.

Well, until next time – have fun in Wolverhampton’s Great Outdoors.
