Green Flag Success!

Submitted by on July 18, 2017 – 12:30 pmNo Comment

We’re delighted to announce that the Millennium Country Park has been awarded it’s 11th Green Flag Award in a row, making it one of the top Parks in the country for over a decade!

Considering our very small team, we are really proud to receive this award and we want to give a huge thanks to all of our Forest Volunteers that have helped us maintain the Park over the past year. We may not have had any massive new additions, like a Tower Hide and Woodland Walkway, in the past 12 months but we have resolved the flooding issues over at Gap Wood and had nearly 100% nesting rate in our 88 hole Sand Martin Wall! Unfortunately, we haven’t had any take up from on the swift boxes yet, though we did have a nesting family of blue tits in one of them so perhaps word will spread amongst the bird community (that’s how it works, right?)

Thank you to everyone who’s visited and enjoyed the Park in the past 12 months, and we hope to see you all again this summer!

Voting starts in September for the People’s Choice Awards and as we’ve made the Top 10 for several years, we’re pretty competitive about it – watch this space for more info on how to vote!
