Our hard work at Frilford Heath Golf Club acknowledged with an award!

Abingdon Green Gym's hard work over the past six years at Boundary House Fen has been acknowledged with an award. 

Frilford Heath Golf Club won a Sports Turf Research Institute Golf Environment Award 2017 for the best environmental project on a golf course – namely the fen restoration work at Boundary House Fen. 50 golf clubs from around Britain were nominated for STRI environmental awards, and there were winners in 3 categories. 

From the STRI website:
"Frilford Heath Golf Club amazed with their extensive fen restoration works, a result of true determination. Their efforts have seen the return of a number of fen indicator species which haven’t been seen for many years. In partnership with Natural England, and with the help of Abingdon Green Gym, the greenkeeping team have worked to enhance this nationally important habitat for the future of the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest)."
