We are thrilled to share the news today that Ferry Meadows is among a record-breaking 1,970 UK parks and green spaces and 131 in thirteen other countries around the world that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that our green space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

We applied for Green Flag status early this year and had a rigorous inspection and assessment process. Oliver Burke, Head of Operations at Nene Park Trust says: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for Ferry Meadows. We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication from both our staff and fantastic volunteers that goes into maintaining Ferry Meadows to such a high standard.”

Today the 2019 list of winners are announced and you can read more about this at http://www.greenflagaward.org.uk/

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “It’s fantastic that we have more Green Flag Awards in the UK than ever before, joined this year by 131 International winners. Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We congratulate each and every winner on their fantastic achievement.”
