This year, Keep Wales Tidy has unveiled the winner of the Green Flag Award. This is an award to mark a quality park or green space.
221 parks and green spaces have met the high standards this year, it was a tight competition for the component to win the Green Flag Award and Green Flag Community Award. A lot of diverse range of sites were recognized for this year’s competition, from urban parks and housing estates, to university campuses and farms.
This year, we here at Byw’n Iach are delighted to share that the flag will be flying at Byw’n Iach Dwyfor, Pwllheli. This garden has been recognized for their excellent facilities and commitment to deliver a great quality green space.
Terry Williams, Exercise Referral Coordinator at Byw’n Iach, said
“We are delighted to be given the Green Flag Award here at Byw’n Iach Dwyfor, Pwllheli. This is a testament of the efforts of the volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award,”
The Green Flag Award programme is delivered in Wales by an environmental charity, Keep Wales Tidy, with support from the Welsh Government. The competition is judged by green space experts, who volunteer their time, to visit applicant sites and assess them against strict criteria, from cleanliness to community involvement.
Lucy Prisk, Green Flag Coordinator at Keep Wales Tidy said:
“The Green Flag Award programme continues to go from strength to strength in Wales, thanks to the commitment and enthusiasm of staff and volunteers across the country.
“We can’t underestimate how important high-quality parks and green spaces are to our communities, our health and wellbeing, nature and economy. We want to encourage everyone to explore their local area and make the most of the award-winning sites on their doorstep.”
