Apex Park receives Green Flag Award for fifth year running

Highbridge's Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park has this week been awarded a Green Flag Award for a fifth year running.

Judges have praised its excellent use of green space, well-maintained facilities and high standards of safety and security.

The Highbridge facilities are among 1,288 parks and green spaces to have received Green Flags and Community Awards in 2011.

Chairman of Sedgemoor District Council, Cllr Gill Slocombe, will raise the Green Flag during a ceremony next Wednesday (August 3rd) at 10.30am along with representatives of the Friends of Apex Park group.

The award recognises the work put in by the Friends group plus Sedgemoor’s Parks Officers, Dog Wardens, Clean Surroundings Team.

The Green Flag Award is the national standard for parks and green spaces across England and Wales. The scheme recognises parks that achieve excellent standards, in the same way that the Blue Flag scheme recognises clean beaches. Green Flag’s vision is that by 2020, 50 per cent of green spaces in England and Wales will be of Green Flag standard – a staggering 15,000 sites.
