WISBECH park is among a record number of open spaces across the East which has received a Green Flag Award to mark high quality and good management.

Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy sent 800 judges to visited applicant sites, and assessed them against eight criteria, including cleanliness, sustainability and conservation.

St Peter’s Church Park at Wisbech has been awarded with a green flag for the sixth year running and was one of 121 winners across the Eastern region.

Among the green flag presentations were Wandlebury Country Park, Cambridge, Jubilee Gardens, Ely, Central Park, Peterborough and Eye Community Open Space,

Councillor Peter Murphy, the Fenland District Council portfolio holder responsible for open spaces, said: “We’re delighted to have received this accolade yet again.
