WISBECH Park and St Peter’s Church Gardens in Wisbech have both been awarded Green Flag Awards for the next year.

The Green Flag Award is the benchmark national standard for parks and green spaces in the UK and is awarded annually.

Wisbech proudly remains the site of two Green Flag sites, the only two in Fenland to fly the standard.

The new flags have been presented and are now flying high at the park and gardens.

The award was given to Wisbech Park following a mystery visit by the judges, while St Peter’s Gardens was a scheduled visit.

Fenland Council Parks and Open Spaces manager Bob Ollier said: “The park and gardens are at a very good standard. This is really good for the town.”
