 June 23rd 2019 - Picnic in the park

July 2019 - Red House park has been awarded green flag status.

Green flag

Red House Park has successfully been awarded GREEN FLAG. The first in the Park's history. Its been a long time coming and lots of hard work but finally we've been recognised and rewarded. A massive thank you to the Friend's of Red House Park for working tirelessly all year round, making the park look great and organising events that raise money that goes towards park improvements. These unsung heroes do this voluntarily and want to make sure the park is enjoyed by all. Also a big thank you to SMBC and ground staff for supporting the Friend's and making the park welcoming to visitors. I must also mention the many other volunteers that help in and around the park. Thank you all very much.

So what is Green Flag? The Green Flag Award is the benchmark national standard for publicly accessible parks and green spaces in the United Kingdom. The scheme was set up in 1996 to recognise and reward green spaces in England and Wales that met the laid down high standards.
