Byw’n Iach Dwyfor, Pwllheli is glad to win the award for this year’s Green Flag Award – the international mark of a quality park or green space.
Award in recognition of its dedicated volunteer involvement, high environmental standards and commitment to delivering great quality green space.
This is what Terry Williams, Exercise Referral Coordinator had to say:
“This year has been very challenging because of the pandemic. Because of the volunteers and their dedication and hard work throughout the year we have been able to ensure high quality to reach the qualification for The Green Flag Awards.”
127 community managed green spaces across the country have met the high standards needed to receive the Green Flag Community Award. This means that Wales still holds a third of the UK’s community Green Flag sites. The Green Flag Award programme is delivered in Wales by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy, with support from Welsh Government.
Lucy Prisk, Green Flag Coordinator at Keep Wales Tidy said:
“The pandemic has shown just how important high-quality parks and green spaces are to our communities. For many of us, they have been a haven on our doorstep, benefitting our health and well-being.
“The success of Byw’n Iach Dwyfor in achieving the Green Flag Community Award is a testament to the volunteers who have maintained excellent standards under the most challenging circumstances this year. I’d like to congratulate and thank them all for their outstanding commitment.”
