Stafford Orchard retains its Green Flag Award

Stafford Orchard has received another Green Flag Award for excellence in 2014/15. A ‘mystery shopper’ from the Keep Britain Tidy organisation, which assesses and gives the annual awards to green spaces meeting the highest standards, reported that Stafford Orchard was “a delightful park to visit. It was pleasing to see that the Green Flag standards are being maintained”.

She was particularly impressed with the access from Station Road, noting that “the entrance is pleasantly planted and landscaped with welcoming signage. The Park plaza cluster of buildings includes the park’s office, toilets, former historic gaol and gateway feature, creating an attractive entrance. Notice Boards also have details about village and local events”.

The assessment covered accessibility, standards of maintenance and cleanliness, safety, signage, play equipment, lighting, horticulture and general appearance. The staff were also complimented - Danny the groundsman getting a special mention by the mystery shopper for offering her a token to access the toilets when he saw her struggling to find a coin!
