We are delighted to announce that in spite of the challenging circumstances this year Priory Fields has, for the tenth year running, been awarded the Green Flag Award, the international benchmark of quality for parks and green spaces. You will see the flag flying from the flagpole at the entrance to the fields. As you can see from the full report below we received the highest grade in every section bar one. The judging is usually carried out in June/July when the fields are looking their best but due to the restrictions this year the unannounced inspection was delayed until the end of October. The comment about the muddy paths is something we are constantly aware of and will do more to improve on next year.

The aim of the Friends who manage and develop the fields is to create a pleasant tranquil space for the benefit of the local community and to provide a haven for wildlife of all forms.

If you approve of what we are doing and would like to join us, or if you would like to make any comments, please contact us.
