He added: “The awards wouldn't be possible without collaboration between the council, town and parish councils and the amazing volunteers and community groups, who between them maintain the exceptional high standards in these council-run parks.”

Dacorum Borough Council is supporting Love Parks Week 2022, a national campaign that encourages people to make the most of their local parks and open spaces, that starts on Friday (July 29) until August 5.

The Green Flag Award scheme is managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

The award recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces and sets the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
