Green Flag Award 2017/18 – University Campuses up for People’s Choice Awards

The University of Exeter Streatham and St Luke’s Campuses have re-achieved the Green Flag Awards for 2017/18 and are among the nominees in a vote for the UK’s favourite spaces.

The campuses were among almost 1,800 UK sites to win awards and all are now part of a public vote to find the top 10.

Voting for the People’s Choice Awards is open throughout September, with the results due to be announced on Wednesday 11th October. Please vote for our campuses at http://www.greenflagaward.org.uk/news/which-is-your-favourite-park/

Iain Park, Director of Grounds at the University of Exeter, said “We were delighted to re-secure the Green Flag Awards and the public vote is another chance to make people aware of the University’s beautiful grounds. We are proud of the horticulture and open space maintenance that our staff manage to achieve for students, staff and visitors to enjoy as part of continued promotion of the University”.

The Green Flag Award scheme is run by Keep Britain Tidy and last year tens of thousands of people voted for their favourite park or green space.

Green Flag 2015-16

As mentioned in previous posts, we have retained our Green Flags at both St. Luke’s and Streatham Campuses.  We have now had our flag raising ceremony at Streatham Campus, we were not able to have a similar ceremony at St. Luke’s due to building work going on near the flagpole.  We were, however, able to have photos taken in the beautiful staff garden at St. Luke’s and the sun even tried to shine for us a bit.

Green Flag 2014-15

We are delighted to be able to announce that both the St Luke’s Campus and Streatham Campus have been awarded the Green Flag, recognising them as being among the best green spaces in the country.  The Green Flag judges assessed us against eight strict criteria including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement. Our Grounds Teams work extremely hard to ensure the grounds are looking their best, so it is great to get this award in recognition.

We will be having our flag-raising ceremonies in the next couple of weeks, so we will post more photos when we get them, until then, we can show off our certificates!
