Green Flag Awards for parks

Posted onPosted on 27th Jul

Newark and Sherwood District Council is again celebrating Green Flag awards for Newark Castle Gardens; Sconce and Devon Park, Newark; Vicar Water Country Park, Clipstone; and Sherwood Heath Cockglode and Rotary Woods, Ollerton – the international quality mark for parks and green spaces.

Newark Castle and Gardens has also achieved the much coveted Green Heritage Site Accreditation, an award supported by Historic England, for the management of its historic features.

Coun Roger Jackson, portfolio holder for Cleaner, Safer, Greener at the council, said: “Retaining this internationally-recognised award for quality parks and green spaces is a fantastic achievement and a true testament to the hard work and commitment that goes into maintaining these spaces around our district.

“All those involved from park rangers, Street Scene staff, our Corporate Property team and site managers to the incredible groups of Friends and volunteers are all responsible for this achievement and play a vital role in the continuing preservation of our green spaces that we all love to enjoy.”
