Prestigious Green Flag awards for three North Somerset beauty spots
Three beauty spots in North Somerset have been awarded prestigious Green Flag awards.
The Green Flag Award recognises well-managed, high-quality green spaces which are available for public use.
Watchhouse Hill in Pill, Uphill Hill and Abbots Pool Woodland at Abbots Leigh have all been given the awards. The award scheme is managed in the UK by a consortium, comprising Keep Britain Tidy, The Conservation Volunteers and GreenSpace.
Known collectively as the Green Flag Plus Partnership, the consortium manages the scheme in England on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government. North Somerset Council executive member for parks and green spaces, Councillor Peter Bryant, said the awards were a credit to everyone involved in managing the green spaces.
Mr Bryant said: “There is a great deal of work that goes into keeping these wonderful spaces well managed for everyone to enjoy.
“To receive the Green Flag award again at all three of these sites is impressive and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their efforts.”
The award-winning sites, which can be found at www.greenflagaward.org.uk have been raising their flags throughout Love Parks Week.
