We are very pleased to be able to report that our two reserves have been awarded the Green Flag Community Award for 2012/2013. This is now the fourth consecutive year we have received this award and is in recognition of the work we do over the year to maintain the areas. The aspects that the judges look at in particular include the area being a welcoming place with safe access, management of litter and dog fouling, community involvement and conservation of biodiversity.
Norman Clyde-Watson, Chairman of The Friends of Bramcote Ridge, commented “Again I am delighted with the result. This award is recognition of all the hard work undertaken by the group and Broxtowe Borough Council throughout the year.”
On behalf of the committee many thanks to all our members and to Broxtowe Borough Council for their continued help and support.
It is vital that we continue our efforts in clearing litter, cutting back vegetation from pathways, maintaining and improving the wildflower areas and, above all, being aware that this site is one that can safely be enjoyed by all the local community as well as being beneficial to wildlife.
The Friends are always looking for extra pairs of hands to help out or to simply support their work, so...
