Bradwell village green is protected

A GARDEN in a Hope Valley village has been protected for good after being registered as a village green.

Bradwell Parish Council has registered the Peace Garden, which it owns, with Derbyshire County Council as a village green to ensure the space in the heart of the village ‘is safe for ever’.

Nicola Hodgson, from The Open Spaces Society, a group which works to protect green spaces, said Bradwell Parish Council had shown a fine example to other councils across the country.
