TEP is delighted to be involved in Green Flag Award judging and currently has 9 Green Flag judges undertaking regular inspections of Parks as part of TEP’s ongoing commitment to Community and Social Responsibility (CSR).
Now in its 22nd year, Green Flag has gone from strength to strength with an amazing 1,883 Green Flags awarded across the UK. As well as traditional parks, greenspaces such as university campuses, shopping centres, war memorials and burial sites are all achieving Green Flag status. Participating in Green Flag judging also benefits TEP’s staff. Seeing a variety of park management plans and novel approaches to community involvement helps to build our skills and expertise.
The importance of our Parks cannot be overestimated. Whether it’s a large National Park or small urban greenspace, the benefits for people and nature are immense and TEP is delighted to be involved in championing the UK’s Parks and greenspaces. Keep Britain Tidy’s Love Parks Week in 13th – 22nd July and National Parks Week in 22nd – 29th July are just two of the great ways the UK is promoting spending time and enjoying the outdoors.
