Rachel Jones, Hart Countryside Ranger, informs us that Fleet Pond has recently achieved Green Flag status, which is a national benchmark for parks and green spaces in the UK.
You can read about the Green Flag Award on their web site here, which includes:
“Awards are given on an annual basis and winners must apply each year to renew their Green Flag status. We realise that all green spaces are different and this diversity is welcomed, with each site being judged on its own merits and suitability to the community it serves.”
