Council celebrates Green Flag Awards for district’s popular green spaces

Warwick District Council, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Friends of Oakley Wood were celebrating the news this week that Oakley Wood has once again received a prestigious Green Flag Award, which sets the standard for the management of open spaces across the UK.

Crackley Wood in Kenilworth and Jephson Gardens and Mill Gardens were also recipients of a Green Flag, the international quality mark for parks and green spaces. This year marks the fifteenth consecutive year that Jephson Gardens and Mill Gardens have received a Green Flag, in addition to Jephson Gardens receiving the Green Heritage Site Accreditation for good conservation standards and the prominence of historic features.

Work is continuing this autumn at Oakley Wood to promote the establishment of native broadleaved trees as part of a 10-year woodland management plan, in partnership with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.
