Croydon Cemetery Awarded Green Flag
Ground Control is proud to reveal that Croydon Cemetery has been awarded another Green Flag, marking it as one of the best green spaces in the country.
Croydon Cemetery is among a record-breaking 1,582 parks and green spaces that will receive a prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
The award, run by environmental charity ‘Keeping Britain Tidy’, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Ground Control has been maintaining Croydon Cemetery since November 2012 under a contract that includes maintenance of the 51 acre site and involves caring for the 7,000 memorial roses and creating bedding displays as well as keeping the grass, hedges and borders tidy.
Regional Operations Manager, Marc Wilkinson, is delighted with the news:
“Dave Osborne, our site manager, and his team have worked tirelessly, sometimes through adversity to produce another greatly deserved award of recognition for Croydon Cemeteries. It is to the team’s credit that the awarding panel has seen fit to award the green flag once again. We are very proud, thanks to all involved.”
