By Amenity Forum and partners

The Amenity Forum working with partners has announced they are promoting a week of celebration commencing September 20th.

The Forum says too often the work of those in managing amenity and sports spaces goes unnoticed and this week will give an opportunity for all to learn more about what they do, really keeping Britain moving. Never has this been more highlighted than in the past year keeping transport networks working, parks open for exercise and enjoyment and more.

In Green Feet Week, organisations and individuals working in the sector will get involved in charitable activities, large and small, and tell their stories of what they do and why what they do matters to everyone. So what is planned, say the Forum, will be fun, raise valuable funds for charity and highlight the importance of amenity management to the lives of everyone.

John Moverley, chairman of the Amenity Forum who has also announced he will step down from his role in June 2022, said, "I often say it but it is so true that what happens in amenity management impacts upon every UK citizen every day with all involved seeking to create safe, sustainable amenity and sports spaces fit for purpose."

Kate Cooney from Perennial, the horticultural charity, said, "We are very pleased to support this initiative and highlight the work of so many, so often not understood or recognised. It is a brilliant and fun idea with a very real and important purpose."

TurfPro editor, Laurence Gale, said, "This is long over-due and I am delighted both to support it and help bring it to fruition. Now all is needed is for everyone to get involved and make it a real success."

Organisations involved in amenity horticulture at any level are asked to register their interest as soon as possible by emailing Kate at
