THE Friends of Rotten Row have been awarded a coveted Green Flag Community Award... for the eighth year running!
The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces .
Brian Quinn, group chairman, said: “After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns, the news we have achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.
“This is due to all the hard work of the volunteers over the last year.
“Despite all the setbacks of Covid we have managed to keep on top of all the work to keep Rotten Row looking fantastic for locals and visitors alike.”
The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy, under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces.
