A group of dedicated volunteers who care for a beautiful woodland are helping to fly the flag for Linslade.
Linslade Woods has been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award for the third successive year.
The national award, handed out by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.
A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Ken Barry, of Friends of Linslade Woods, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for another year and this has indicated that all the hard work carried out by volunteers throughout the year has paid off.”
The Friends of Linslade Woods have a regular programme of action days, wildlife walks and other events throughout the year. New volunteers are very welcome to take part and further information can be obtained from Ken Barry on 01525 372036.
The next action day is this Saturday (August 31) between 10am and 1pm. Those interested in helping out should meet at the Soulbury Road bridleway entrance wearing work clothes, and strong footwear. Tools and instructions will be provided.
