Green Flag hoisted in the Gunpowder Mills

It was a proud day for GBC Countryside Wardens, the Gunpowder Mills Group and Chilworth2gether as the Green Flag, a nationally recognised award, was finally unfurled in Chilworth Gunpowder Mills.

Shown here is Andrew Norris, Chilworth Gunpowder Mills Group, raising the flag at the entrance to the site, with the Countryside Wardens to the left, who were instrumental in submitting the application, saluting the flag. A special thank you goes to Alison Boyce, now working at Merrist Wood, for her motivation and effort to achieve the award before she left GBC.
GBC entered the Chilworth heritage site for the award and fulfilled the many criteria required, including sensitive management, conservation techniques, and community involvement.
