Green Flags are continuing to fly in Glendale maintained open spaces after the national green services company retained 41 Green Flags for its clients across the country.
Green Flag status has also been newly awarded in another Glendale run area: Prince Consort Gardens in North Somerset.
To win the prestigious award, the parks and green spaces were assessed against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.
Glendale retained its highest number of flags – 14 in total, plus two additional community awards – in Lewisham in South East London.
It retained seven flags in Edinburgh, six in North Somerset, four in Birmingham and three in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Two Green Heritage Awards were secured in Liverpool for Sefton Park and Stanley Park, sites with historic significance. Additional flags were won in Surrey, Lincolnshire and Torbay.
Andy Corcoran, managing director at Glendale, said: “Once again the community open spaces we work in have been recognised as some of the best in the UK, which is a testament to our commitment to creating and sustaining beautiful open spaces which can be enjoyed by all. It’s also fantastic to see a new area recognised for its quality, which indicates just how much work goes into keeping these areas in such a magnificent condition.”
The Green Flag Awards, run by Keep Britain Tidy, are regarded as a benchmark of a quality park or green space which is welcoming, clean, well-maintained, safe and secure.
Glendale’s 43-flag wins are based upon the most up-to-date information at the time of going to press.
