We are once again delighted to report that our two Local Nature Reserves have gained the Green Flag Community Award for 2019/2020. This is now the eleventh consecutive year we have received this award in recognition of the work we do over the year to maintain the sites.
A spokesperson for the Friends of Bramcote Ridge, who help maintain the Alexandrian Plantation and the Sandy Lane Open Space local nature reserves, said:
"We are absolutely delighted to receive the Green Flag Community Award for what is now an eleventh consecutive year. We know how much green open spaces matter to local residents and visitors and this award recognises the work that goes into maintaining our reserves to such a high standard"
Green Flag Award scheme manager, Paul Todd, said,
"It's fantastic that we have more awards in the UK than ever before, joined this year by 131 international winners from thirteen other countries. Each flag recognises the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded and we congratulate every winner on their achievement ."
The Friends, as always, are very grateful for the excellent support they receive from Broxtowe Borough Council."
The scheme is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department of Communities and Local Government.
The Friends are always looking for extra pairs of hands to help out or to simply support their work, so...
