Green Flag Raising

Cllr Bob Bushell (Portfolio Holder for Remarkable Place and Robert Pitchford (BPAG Chair)


The sun shone on the 24th July, when we raised the Green Flag in Boultham Park for the first time.

On the same day we celebrated flag raisings in Hartsholme Country Park and the Arboretum – both of which have held Green Flag status for many years. But for Boultham Park, this was a landmark occasion and there to share the moment were the council’s Portfolio Holder for Remarkable Place, members of the Boultham Park Advisory Group and local community, local ward councillors, staff from the council and Linkage Community Trust, and Continental Landscapes.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the ceremonies at all three parks, and especially to all those people who have contributed to the award – in particular our brilliant Park Advisory Groups and volunteers. We – genuinely – couldn’t have done it without you.
