Windlesham Field of Remembrance is flying the flag as one of the UK’s very best green spaces!
The Windlesham Field of Remembrance in Windlesham, Surrey has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world for 2017/2018!
The field is among a record-breaking 1,797 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a Green Flag Community Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards and is beautifully maintained.
The Windlesham Field of Remembrance was established in 1950 when it was purchased by public donations. The woodland was purchased in 1987 and the site now totals 18 acres in size. The Field is still owned by village and is managed by a dedicated committee of volunteer trustees.
Chair of Trustees Suzanne Sharman said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the second year running.
“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Windlesham FoR to such a high standard.
“The award means a great deal to the Windlesham Community who continue to be responsible for the funding, management and maintenance of The Field.
International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme.
“Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much parks matter to people.”
