Green Flag award for Moors Valley

Date Posted: 21/08/2013

Moors Valley Country Park and Forest in Hampshire has received a Green Flag Award for the third year in a row.

The Green Flag scheme is the national standard for parks and green spaces in England and Wales.

Awarded by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, it provides the most widely accepted measure of quality relating to the management, operation and improvement of freely accessible public parks and green space.

Clare Gronow, countryside manager, said, “It’s particularly gratifying to receive this award as Moors Valley celebrates its 25th anniversary. Receiving the Green Flag is national recognition for the hard work and dedication of the Rangers, support staff, volunteers and business concessionaires whose collective efforts create the Moors Valley experience.”

A school visit to Moors Valley

School trip organisers can choose from a ranger-led session at the park, or a self-guided visit.

Ranger-led sessions focus on a wide range of topics, such as the environment and conservation, or can concentrate more specifically on areas of the park like the woodland or the water.

Sessions, which must be booked in advance, can be made suitable for school groups from pre-school age to Key Stage 4.
