More awards recognition for Broomfield Park Wetland
Last week, we heard the wonderful news that the Broomfield Park Wetland in Enfield has been shortlisted for the 2021 Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards in the Water Management category. The Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards recognise green excellence in business, with categories ranging from individual business leaders to green recovery initiatives. The awards are now in their 14th year and have once again received a record number of nominations. Adding to the project being highly commended in the Susdrain Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) Awards and shortlisted for the 2020 Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Awards, this tops off a fantastic year for a flagship Rivers Trust achievement. Whilst this particular award nomination is led by Coca-Cola and The Rivers Trust, the project itself is one of collaboration. With Thames21, Enfield Council led the design and construction of the wetlands, from identifying the perfect site to monitoring their benefits. WWF-UK, Friends of Broomfield Park, and local community group the Pymmes BrookERS provided valuable support. Broomfield Park wetland is just one of the several projects in the South East that contribute to Coca-Cola’s global Replenish programme to safely return the equivalent amount of water used in all their drinks and production to communities and nature.
