The Friends of Sinfin Moor Park Local Nature reserve have been awarded the Green Flag Community Award to celebrate the contribution the group have made to the park.
One judge of the award said:
Sinfin Moor LNR is a valuable series of habitats within the urban area. The Friends are to be congratulated on their work so far in making this a welcoming community space and for their efforts in widening their visitors knowledge about the wildlife on their doorstep.
The Friends of Sinfin Moor Park Local Nature Reserve have raised funds to pay for the new flag pole. The Communitiy Cafe is managed by the Friends group and profits are reinvested into improving the park e.g. resurfacing footpaths as well as supporting community projects such as the monthly Nature Club and Forest School project which is undertaken by the Friends group.
