Historic England are the public body that looks after England's historic environment. They champion and protect historic places, helping people understand, value and care for them.
The Green Flag Award scheme has worked closely with Historic England to develop the Green Heritage Site Accreditation that is awarded to Green Flag Award winning sites that actively understand, identify, manage and promote the elements of their heritage that make that site unique.
Fields In Trust
The Green Flag Award is delighted to be working with Fields in Trust to ensure our parks and recreational spaces are not only of a high quality but are protected for future generations.Fields in
Trust were founded back in 1925 as the National Playing Fields Association by King George V. Their mission is the same now and as it was then: to ensure that everyone - young or old, able or disabled and wherever they live - should have access to free, local outdoor space for sport, play and recreation. These spaces are vital to building happy and healthy communities and sadly continue to be threatened by all kinds of development.
They are a national charity and operate throughout the UK to safeguard recreational spaces and campaign for better statutory protection for all kinds of outdoor sites, visit fieldsintrust.org
