No I didn’t know what the Purple Flag was either. Apparently though..
“Nottingham has been successful in its bid to gain Purple Flag Status for its late night offering and is among one of the first places in Britain to be recognised for the strides they have made in becoming safer, cleaner and more pleasant places to be after dark..
Nottingham city centre was assessed on a range of criteria including attractiveness and appeal, cleanliness, personal safety, arts and cultural offer, how welcoming it is, as well as the strength of partnership working”
Jon Collins is quoted as saying “”The Assessors and Panel were impressed by particular strengths, including Doorwatch, Street Pastors, good signage, refurbishment of the public realm, BID management of the city centre and the excellent partnership work between businesses and agencies.”
Okay there are some good bits about our City Centre including the Doorwatch scheme. However they still haven’t managed to erect a sign in market square to the nearest public toilets.
