Green Flag Awards 2022

Sydenham Garden Resource Centre awarded the coveted Green Flag Award as it is officially recognised as one of the country’s best parks / green spaces.

 

In a record-breaking year Sydenham Garden is raising its prestigious Green Flag Award.

 

Today, Sydenham Garden is celebrating after receiving a Green Flag Award Award for the Resource Centre, one of 2208 UK winners.

The award is the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.

After two years that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that Sydenham Garden Resource Centre has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.

Beth, Sydenham Garden’s Director, notes:

“We are delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for 2022 from Keep Britain Tidy. This is the eleventh year we have received a Community Award and as in previous years we couldn’t have achieved it without the continued dedication and hard work of all those involved including co-workers, volunteers, friends, and staff. Over the last couple of years in particular the award highlights how important green spaces and being outside in nature is to people’s mental health and general wellbeing”.

Commenting on the news that Sydenham Garden has met the Green Flag Award standard, Keep Britain Tidy’s Accreditation Manager Paul Todd said:

“I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making Sydenham Garden Resource Centre worthy of a Green Flag Award.

“Sydenham Garden Resource Centre is a vital green space for the community in South East London. This award is testament to all the hard work of staff and volunteers, who do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
