Green Flag award for Wyndham Park in Grantham

Have your say

A PARK in Grantham has received recognition as one of the best in the region.

Wyndham Park has been awarded Green Flag status for the first time this week, joining 75 other parks in the East Midlands with the accolade.

South Kesteven District Council cabinet member Coun John Smith said: “This is a fantastic achievement which provides well deserved recognition of all the hard work and time we have invested in the park.

“This is a wonderful example of collaborative working between the community in Wyndham Park Forum, our contractors Veolia and SKDC.”

The Green Flag Award is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the United Kingdom.

The scheme was set up in 1996 to recognise and reward green spaces in England and Wales that meet the highest standards.
