We are asking you all for your Tesco votes for our play area safety project!  You can vote in the Trowbridge store from 2 to 28 January on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch the monthly funding scheme, which sees grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local outdoor community projects.

Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and this month shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant.

North Bradley Peace Memorial Trust is one of the groups on the shortlist, our project ‘Safe Children’s Play Area’ will ensure that the longstanding problem of an onsite water-filled ditch can be addressed whilst also generally enhancing the experience for all using the site.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 2 to 28 January on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

Green Flag Award home page

The Green Flag Award® scheme is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK.

It was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country. The first awards were given in 1997 and, many years later, it continues to provide the benchmark against which our parks and green spaces are measured. It is also seen as a way of encouraging others to achieve high environmental standards, setting a benchmark of excellence in recreational green areas.

Green Flag Community Award®

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.

All community green spaces are eligible to enter, as long as they are freely accessible to all.

Green Flag award – vote for your park!

Green Flag Community Award

 

 

The winner of the 2014 People’s Choice will be announced on 16 October.

 

The Green Flag Award was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the UK’s best green spaces. It is the standard for parks and recognises well-managed, high-quality sites that meet the needs of the community.

 

All Green Flag Award winning parks and green spaces are entered into the annual People’s Choice Award vote, which last year saw thousands of votes recorded and resulted in the crowning of Margam Park in Neath Port Talbot as the People’s Choice.
