Green Flag Vote

Chorleywood House Estate was recently awarded another Green Flag because of the excellence of the environment it offers, and the diverse, well maintained landscape. The inspectors applied tougher criteria when making the awards this year, so we are especially pleased to have been recognised again in this way, and to have acknowledged that the Estate is a wonderful place for people of all ages to walk, rest and play.

Three Rivers District Council have drawn our attention to the ‘Green Flag People’s Choice’ competition. Throughout September people can vote for their favourite Green Flag site in the world (!). With Apple Day approaching – Saturday 6th October – providing a great family opportunity to see the Estate (including the chance to visit the Lady Ela Russell Red & White Summerhouse, please vote for us. Here is a poster and a link to the competition: http://www.greenflagaward.org/park-summary/?park=824
