Churchfield Open Space recognised as one of the UK’s best!

Churchfield in Wigginton York has been recognised by the Green Flag Community Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world. Churchfield joins 4 other green spaces awarded recognition in North Yorkshire.

The park is among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that will today receive a prestigious Green Flag/Green Flag Community Award – the mark of a quality park or green space. This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Chairman Richard Denton said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the third year.

“We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Churchfield to such a high standard.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme, with more Green Flags awarded this year than last year.”

“Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to enjoy, and hope that next year, we award even more flags.”
