PARKS GET GREEN FLAG

EADT Suffolk - - UPFRONT -

Two Ip­swich parks have been cer­ti­fied with Green Flag sta­tus, mak­ing Christchurch Park and Holy­wells Park among 1,883 places con­sid­ered the most wel­com­ing and sus­tain­able in the UK. Both are pop­u­lar with tourists and res­i­dents, and Christchurch Park is fre­quently used for events such as Ip­swich Mu­sic Day. The na­tional Green Flag award is made by en­vi­ron­men­tal charity Keep Bri­tain Tidy. Councillor Philip Smart, Ip­swich Bor­ough Coun­cil’s parks and open spaces port­fo­lio holder, said the awards demon­strated what staff, friends of the parks and vol­un­teers can achieve.
