Green Flag Community Award
FoHP are pleased to announce that they have received the Green flag Community Award for 2016/17.
The Green Flag Community Award® is a national award that recognises high quality green spaces in the UK that are managed by voluntary and community groups. The Award is part of the Green Flag Award® scheme, the national standard for quality parks and green spaces.
The scheme realises that all green spaces are different so each site is judged on its own merits and suitability to the community it serves. Awards are given on an annual basis and winners must apply each year to renew their Community Award status.
This would not be possible without everyone’s continued help in helping us maintain the meadow area – so thank you.
On Saturday 23 July along with our ranger Gareth Stamp & Meriel Jones Bute Park Education officer we put on our first Hailey Park Meadow Bioblitz. The weather was warm, sunny with clouds here and there but a great environment to go hunting for wildlife in the meadow. It was also a success, with many bugs captured, handled carefully, identified, logged and let go unharmed – and while the day was about seeing what we could find there was also some emphasis on fun. Its most likely we didn’t get to identify everything that we found or even catch them but it’s a start in many more events like this. If you want to see what we found take a look here www
