BOTH Apex Park and Marine Cove Gardens had their green flags raised today (August 2) – the international sign of a quality park or green space.

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

A spokesman for Sedgemoor District Council said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for Marine Cove Gardens and Apex Park."

Each flag honours the thousands of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.
