Welshpool’s Severn Farm Pond has received a prestigious Green Flag Community Award.

The nature reserve, managed by Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust, is one of just five in Powys recognised by the awards that include a diverse range of sites, from country parks and formal gardens, to allotments, woodlands and churchyards.

Now in its third decade, the international Green Flag Award is a sign to the public that a park or green space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Wales holds more than a third of the UK’s Green Flag community sites, which are maintained and run by volunteers.

The Green Flag Award programme is delivered in Wales by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy, with support from Welsh Government.

Independent green space experts volunteered their time in early autumn to judge applicant sites against eight strict criteria, including biodiversity, cleanliness, environmental management and community involvement.
