A very busy few hours were spent in the recreation ground clearing and burning more brambles and other rubbish from behind the garages, as well as removing a trailer load of paving slabs and builder’s rubble that had been dumped in and beside the children’s play area. There is still a great deal more to be done in the play area and we hope to have another go at it, probably on the 25th April. Lots of helpers would be appreciated to get the job done!
21st March is to be the 1st ‘Community Clear Up Day’. If anyone would like to help, we will be on the recreation ground from approx 10am clearing some of the fly-tipping in the play area and the branches blown down in the last high winds by the garages. Just bring suitable tools, wear sensible clothing, accompany your children & we’ll provide encouragement, tea & biscuits! https://www.gov.uk/government/news/call-to-arms-for-community-clear-up-to-mark-the-start-of-spring–2

A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
North Bradley Peace Memorial Trust Recreation Ground, BA14 0SH has existed since 1944, when it was donated for the villager’s use, especially homecoming soldiers.
Trustee Sue Hawker said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Community Award for the 7th year from Keep Britain Tidy. Ours is the only site in Wiltshire to receive this award which recognises and highlights that people in North Bradley are benefiting from a green space of the very highest quality. We will be celebrating our achievement at the annual fete and dog show on site on Saturday 30th August, the grand opening will be performed at 11am by local school headteacher, Jeanette O’Brien. The facilities are often enjoyed by the pupils as part of their lessons as well as providing recreation and a focal point for the whole village. We look forward to seeing as many local people as possible on the day!
Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to announce yet another record-breaking year for Green Flag Award parks and green spaces.
“A Green Flag Award provides national recognition for all the parks managers, staff and volunteers who, through their dedication and hard work, have helped to create these fantastic places for everyone to enjoy.
