Brunel University London’s luscious campus has been recognised as one of the country’s finest green spaces for a fourth consecutive year.

The university is one of just 2000 outdoor spaces across the UK to be bestowed a coveted Green Flag Award, an internationally recognized hallmark of quality.

James Budkiewicz, Assistant Director of Commercial Services at Brunel, said: “Given all the challenges Brunel has faced in 2020 I’m absolutely delighted the grounds team have managed to maintain our Green flag for its 4th consecutive year.  Its credit to the highly skilled and committed team, who have remained on campus throughout lockdown, to ensure the campus remains in excellent condition.  We continue to focus on providing an attractive and biodiverse campus for the benefit of staff and students alike. Well done Grounds team – I could not be prouder.”

Commenting on Brunel’s success, Allison Ogden-Newton OBE, Chief Executive of Keep Britain Tidy, who run the award, said: “This year, more than ever, our parks and green spaces have been a lifeline and we know that millions of people have used them to relax, meet friends, exercise or simply escape for a short time.

“It is testament to the incredible dedication and hard work of parks staff and volunteers that, despite the challenges that went along with record numbers of visitors, Brunel has achieved the highest international standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”

The Green Flag Awards Scheme is run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, under licence from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful, Keep Wales Tidy and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.
