Five Dacorum parks and green spaces have received a Green Flag Award in a year when millions of people across the country have seen the value of having great quality green spaces on their doorstep. Bunkers Park and Water Gardens in Hemel Hempstead, Canal Fields in Berkhamsted, Chipperfield Common and Tring Memorial Garden have all received Green Flags. The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, is an international quality mark, recognising and rewarding well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for their management across the United Kingdom and around the world. These five sites in Dacorum have once again been awarded Green Flags, recognising the beautifully, well managed green spaces and the dedicated staff who look after them. Cllr Alan Anderson, portfolio holder for Environmental Services said: “I am delighted that these beautiful sites have achieved Green Flag status once again. This award recognises the outstanding work of the teams who manage and maintain them to such a high standard. This year, these green spaces have been even more important for resident’s health and well-being and I would like to thank all the staff involved in providing these areas for our community.” 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.
