Awards & Grants
Green Flag Community Award
The Friends of School House Lane Orchard has received a Green Flag Community Award six years running.
The Orchard was the first site in the borough of Richmond upon Thames to gain the Community Award in 2011. It has been awarded a Green Flag every year since then, most recently for 2016-17 and has applied again for 2017-18.
The Award recognises the achievement of FSHLO in creating and maintaining a high-quality, well-managed and welcoming place, central to the local community. Holders of the award have to reapply and be judged each year – a process that encourages constant improvement.
