Pam Donovan told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I would like to say
a big thank you to Sedgemoor District Council and the Friends
of Apex Park for all their hard work. The Apex Park is used by
thousands of people throughout the year."
"We have been awarded the Green Flag award again this year
and to achieve this, the park is kept to a very high standard.
We can only maintain this quality with the help of people like
the Friends, so if you enjoy the park come along and join in the
fun at our meetings which take place every month. Thanks also
to Marina Turner for all your hard work."
And Marina Turner added: "It's only with the help from the
volunteers who are the Friends of Apex Park and our Clean Surroundings
Team and Parks Officers that Apex keeps being awarded its Green
Flag Award. This year we gained the highest score ever and it's
a joy to work with such enthusiastic individuals."
Those interested in the park and its wildlife can still enjoy

available in the park by the interpretation board to the right
