It should appear alongside the information sheet to ensure everyone understands what the Green Flag stands for.

Useful tips:

  • Create a catchy headline that you’d want to read
  • Add the human touch with a powerful quote. What does Green Flag mean to you? What difference does your site make to people’s lives?
  • Always include a high-resolution (at least 1MB in size) photo to send with your press release
  • Nowadays, social media can be a great way of contacting media outlets
  • Make sure your contact details are at the end of the release

Events

Hosting a celebration event can be a great way of engaging the local community. It doesn’t need to be a grand or expensive event – it could be as simple as raising your flag as part of an open day or summer fete.

Make your event even more special by inviting your local AM, MP or dignitaries along to celebrate. You could ask local media along too – just make sure you contact them in good time.

If you are organising an event, please contact Lucy at [email protected]

Make the most of social media

We want to grow the #GreenFlagWales family and encourage more Green Flag sites and managing organisations to share their achievements on social media.

We’ve created a special image card promoting Green Flag sites, which can be shared on any social media platform – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.

Useful tips:

  • Research shows that social media posts with images or videos perform far better than those without
  • Take a look back at your previous posts to see when your followers are most active online
  • Use hashtags to widen your audience. We use the dedicated hashtags #GreenFlagWales / #GwobrYFanerWerdd and Visit Wales use #FindYourEpic / #gwladgwlad, but also consider other keywords e.g. #lovetheoutdoors #awardwinning #parks
