Today the Green flag awards were announced and Bushey has gain a new flag and retain two of our long term holders.

The Mary Forsdyke Garden and Warren Lake, in Bushey Heath, has won the award for the first year. The park was greatly improved last year. The lake had the silt build up removed,a wildflower meadow was planted and a  Christmas tree was added as well as boardwalk across the lake. The garden hosted the Bushey Acoustic Festival earlier this year and it well deserves this award.
