Green Flag 2022/23

Once again Caerphilly Woodlands Trust and its volunteers won the prestigeous Green Flag Award, the recognised standard for outstanding green spaces.

We’re proud to be helping nature’s recovery by protecting our native woodland, its species rich hedgerows and creating this biodiverse space for the community to enjoy.

One in six species in Wales is under threat. It’s a shocking statistic but if we work together and take urgent action, we can reverse this decline.
By working with and supporting volunteers we are empowering young and old within our community to drive this environmental change. It takes bold action if we are going to create a more sustainable and resilient future for our children and their children.

“Therefore it goes without saying that if not for the dedication of Trustees and volunteers, we would not have achieved this prestigious award, a recognition of their hard work and dedication. I want to give a massive shout out to all of our wonderful volunteers, past and present, who have contributed their time freely to this amazing community activity.

Volunteers in Wales have a value of at least £757 million per year but give their time for nothing but for the benefit of their community.

If we are to build a better and safer world for our children and grandchildren we will need the dedication and good will of volunteers like these more than ever. They are indeed truly priceless”
