Park wins Green Flag award

Lloyd Park has just received a Green Flag award – the national benchmark for quality for recreational parks and green spaces in the UK. This is a serious achievement and not all applicants make the grade. The council applied for the award last year but were told the park was still too incomplete so it is great to receive this recognition now.

The Friends are also very happy to announce that that our jogging markers are now installed, marking 200m segments of a 1km trail around Aveling fields. We’d love to hear from runners who are enjoying using the new trail!
