Green flag awarded for second yearWe’re delighted to announce that Hale Village has been recognised by the Green Flag Award Scheme as one of the very best in the world for the second year running.

Hale Village is among a record-breaking 1,797 UK parks and green spaces that have received the prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.

This international award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.

Commenting, Jeremy Hickman, Head of Property and Facilities Manager at Hale Village said, “We’re delighted and very proud to receive a Green Flag Award for the second time. We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication of our team that goes into maintaining the Village to such a high standard.”

International Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme. Each flag is a celebration of the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award. The success of the scheme, especially in these challenging times, demonstrates just how much parks and green spaces matter to people.”

Hale Village won Gold and was the overall winner in the London in Bloom Awards last year.   Achieving 180 points out of a maximum of 200, the judges said Hale Village ‘could be the envy of any major European City’.

We’re delighted that Living Under One Sun (LUOS) has received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service for ‘outstanding work in their community.’

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is given to volunteer groups in the UK and was created by the Queen in 2002 to mark her Golden Jubilee. Living Under One Sun relies heavily on volunteers as it has no core funding. They do incredible work in Hale Village and around Tottenham and truly deserve this award.  Well done Leyla and everyone at LUOS, their volunteers and friends.
