The Grounds Team have proudly celebrated the successful re-achievement of the prestigious Green Flag Award for 2019/20 for our beautiful Streatham Campus and St Luke’s Campus.
The Award is the mark of a quality park or green space which has achieved the international standards for open space excellence and reflects the hard work that our dedicated team put into maintaining and nurturing our grounds to the highest standards.
Streatham Campus receives the award for the eighth consecutive year and St Luke’s Campus for the sixth consecutive year.
The University Grounds Team and the University Community Student Wardens teamed up with the St David’s Litter Busters group on Friday 27th April 2018 in a successful joint community project, litter picking around the St David’s neighbourhood.
Despite it being a very wet rainy day, we collected numerous bags of rubbish and had some interesting finds!
Before the litter pick; dry and raring to start!
After the litter pick; soaking wet but very happy with our achievement!
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.
