Green Flag Award delight for Burnham's Marine Cove supporters

Supporters of Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove Gardens are celebrating this week after the park received its first Green Flag Award.

The seafront gardens - which re-opened 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).

Cllr Gill Slocombe, Chairman of Sedgemoor District, will raise the new green flag at 12 noon during a celebratory ceremony.

The Green Flag Award is given by Keep Britain Tidy to well-managed, high-quality green spaces that are freely accessible to the public.

Highbridge's Apex Park has also received the news this week that it has been awarded a Green Flag for a sixth year running.

Sedgemoor District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told "The awards are a sign to visitors that the parks are well-maintained and managed, with excellent facilities. It is with thanks to Sedgemoor’s 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."
