Huntingdonshire District Council is celebrating after receiving a Green Flag Award for Hinchingbrooke Country Park, Paxton Pits Nature Reserve and Priory Park. Hinchingbrooke and Paxton Pits fly the flag for the sixth year in a row, and Priory Park for the seventh.

The news that these three sites have achieved the accreditation again - the international quality mark for parks and green spaces - is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that care for the green space so that everyone can enjoy it.


Keep Britain Tidy's Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd MBE said: "I would like to congratulate everyone involved at Hinchingbrooke Country Park, Paxton Pits Nature Reserve and Priory Park in achieving a Green Flag Award.

"These sites are a vital green space for the community in Huntingdonshire, bringing people together and providing opportunities to lead healthy lifestyles. The staff and volunteers do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards of the Green Flag Award and everyone involved should feel extremely proud of their achievement."

Executive Councillor for Leisure, Waste and Street Scene, Cllr Simone Taylor, said: "The quality of our parks and open spaces is something we can be really proud of in Huntingdonshire. Winning this award year after year is a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by our excellent staff, community groups, friends groups and volunteers."

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
