Keep Britain Tidy announces a record-breaking number of award-winning parks and green spaces for 2013.
Mudchute Park and Farm is one of the very best in the UK – and that’s official. The green space is among a record-breaking 1,447 parks and green spaces that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag Award.
The national award, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Margaret Tracey the farm’s director said “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for first time.This Award recognises and highlights that people in Tower Hamlets are benefiting from a green space of the very highest quality.”
The record number of awards across the country means more people than ever before will have access to well-managed, quality green space, which is vital to people’s health and well-being.
