Parks scoop top honours

Have your say

CHESTERFIELDS parks were among the winners at the national Green Flag awards which also recognised a host of Sheffield green spaces.

Holmebrook Valley Park received the award for the first time, while Queens Park, in the town centre, retained its award for the seventh year in a row.

Coun Chris Ludlow, Chesterfield Council executive member for the environment, said: “We take a lot of pride in maintaining and developing our parks to give residents a quality space they can enjoy.

“Recognition of our efforts in the form of Green Flag status is always welcome.”
