We are pleased to announce that Cambuslang Park has won the prestigious Green Flag award. The Award is the benchmark for a quality green space, and is awarded by Keep Scotland Beautiful, the independent environmental charity.
They judge against eight criteria testing whether the park is: welcoming, healthy, safe and secure, clean and well maintained; sustainable; manages conservation and heritage; has community involvement; markets itself, and has good management. Friends of Cambuslang Park Treasurer Joy Anderson, said “It’s really good news and we’re really pleased. It just shows what work has been done and the way that land services at the council have stepped up their game, it’s a great honour.” “Everyone has worked together and we hope to continue this in the future.”
“It’s a great incentive to keep things as good as they can be and being awarded the flag makes it all worthwhile.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that has volunteered when we have asked for help. It’s been fantastic to see friends of the park coming along and supporting us each year.
