The Green Flag Award Scheme has been running now for just over 10 years and has 1,290 judged and accredited sites across the UK. The scheme recognises well-managed parks and green space which are open for all to enjoy.  Pilot schemes are also  currently operating in the Netherlands and Germany.

All participating sites are judged against 8 criteria; a welcoming place, healthy safe and secure, clean and well maintained, sustainability, conservation and heritage, marketing, community involvement and management.

QECP has been in the scheme for 6 years now and has been fortunate to be awarded the Green Flag every time. Each year as soon as the awards have been announced the Tidy Britain Group, who run the scheme, operate a public vote to establish the top site across the UK. A voting page on the Green Flag web-site will run until midday on the 12th of September and we hope that as many of our visitors as possible will cast their votes.
