Vote for your favourite park- Green Flag success
Green Flags are proudly flying in Wychavon’s parks after they were once again recognised for their quality. Residents are now being urged to vote for their favourite Wychavon park for a People’s Choice Award, which celebrates the best loved parks on the planet. People can find out how to vote at www.wychavon.gov.uk/parks
The awards, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, recognise well-managed parks, and green spaces. They set the benchmark standard for their management across the United Kingdom and around the world.
The award is valid for one year only, and if a park/green space is to maintain its green flag it must re-apply annually.
Cllr Emma Stokes, Executive Board Member for Environment on Wychavon District Council, said: “Our parks and open spaces were a lifeline for many during the height of lockdown restrictions and it’s wonderful to be able to celebrate them in this way.To retain our Green Flag status, despite the pressures of the pandemic, is a testament to the dedication of our parks team and our contractors Continental Landscapes and Smart Cut, who have worked tirelessly throughout to maintain these high standards. A huge thank you to all of them.”
