A ceremony was held this week to mark the coveted award of a Green Flag to a Weston-super-Mare park.

Prince Consort Gardens, in Upper Kewstoke Road, was recognised by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy as one of the best green spaces in the country.

North Somerset Council celebrated the award with a well-attended ceremony at the gardens this week.

Council chairman John Crockford-Hawley was given the honour of raising the flag, before thanking those who dedicated their time to maintaing the high standards at the gardens.

He said: “Prince Consort Gardens are looking better than ever and that is down to the huge amount of work done here by volunteers, including the Friends of Prince Consort Gardens and friends from Westcliffe House.

“There is a group of people who, seeing what has been achieved here, are now trying to emulate that at Grove Park.

“It’s good to see people coming together from the local community and getting the job done.”
