Flag Award delight for Burnham's Marine Cove supporters
of Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove Gardens are celebrating this week
after the park received its first Green Flag Award.
seafront gardens -
last year following a major £360,000 four-year refurbishment
project part-funded by the National Lottery - will formally receive
the award on Friday (July 20th).
Gill Slocombe, Chairman of Sedgemoor District, will raise the
new green flag at 12 noon during a celebratory ceremony.
Green Flag Award is given by Keep Britain Tidy to well-managed,
high-quality green spaces that are freely accessible to the public.
Apex Park has also received the news this week that it has been
awarded a Green Flag for a sixth year running.
District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The awards are a sign to visitors that the parks are well-maintained
and managed, with excellent facilities. It is with thanks to Sedgemoors
Parks Officers, Dog Wardens, its Clean Surroundings Team as well
as the support from the Friends of Marine Cove Gardens and Friends
of Apex Park that both parks are in tip top condition for their
wide range of visitors."
