PRESS RELEASE: The Vine in Sevenoaks flies the flag as one of the country’s best parks

Published: 14 October 2021

After 18 months that have seen our parks and green spaces play a vital role for people through lockdowns as a place to relax, exercise and meet friends and family safely, the news that The Vine has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that make the green space a great space that everyone can enjoy.


The Vine joins parks and green spaces as diverse as the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, Woodhouse Park in Peterlee and Chiswick Old Cemetery in London.

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.

The Chairman of Sevenoaks Town Council’s Open Spaces Committee said: 'The Green Flag award for the Vine is excellent news - and follows hard on the heels of the Gold standard obtained in the South & South East in Bloom contest. This is a wonderful achievement by Town Council staff and local volunteers. Thank you all.'
