Green Flag Award – August 3rd 2017

Green Flag Award Ceremony – August 3rd 2017

The Rotary Club of Derby helped to establish the Friends of Derby Arboretum (FDA) group and we are active in supporting a number of public events and groups who promote the Arboretum Park. Recently several Derby Parks applied for Green Flag status and earlier this year judges from Green Flag came to decide whether the Arboretum ark met the very stringent award criteria.

These photos were taken on the day the judging was undertaken showing the richness of the views within the Arboretum.
