Double accolade for town parks as Green Flags awarded

Posted: Fri, 15 Oct 2021 16:06 by Parish Council

Two Hinckley parks are officially once again among the best in the UK after they were each awarded a much coveted green flag - a prestigious accolade that is only awarded to the very best parks and green spaces in the UK.

Argents Mead collected its fifth Green Flag Award, recognising the Borough Council's substantial investment in the town centre park over recent years.

Plus in a double celebration for the town, Hollycroft Park has also been awarded a Green Flag - the twelfth year that Hollycroft's environmental excellence has been acknowledged by the scheme. More »

The two award winning parks are two of the 2,127 sites across the country to collect the award for 2021.

The Green Flag Award scheme, celebrating its Silver Jubilee, is managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for their management across the United Kingdom and around the world.

The award is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Councillor Bill Crooks, the Borough Council's Executive Member for Street Scene Services, Parks and Open Spaces said: "This award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining Argents Mead and Hollycroft Park to such a high standard.

"Thanks are due to the staff at the council, and in particular, the Friends of Hollycroft Park Group, for their dedication and hard work that has helped Hollycroft Park to get this much deserved award once again."

Commenting on the news that Hollycroft Park and Argents Mead have once again achieved the Green Flag Award standard, Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd said: "I would like to congratulate everyone involved in making these two parks worthy of a Green Flag Award.

"To meet the requirements demanded by the scheme is testament to the hard work of the staff and volunteers who do so much to ensure that these two Hinckley Parks have high standards of horticulture, safety and environmental management and is a place that supports people to live healthy lives." » Less
