Caldecott Park has won a prestigious Green Flag Award for an eighth year in a row.
The borough’s premier park was honoured at the Green Flag Award ceremony for the Midlands and East of England, which was held at Rugby’s BENN Hall on Wednesday July 22.
The Green Flag Awards, organised by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, aim to raise standards in parks and green spaces across the country, promoting well-maintained and well-managed parks with excellent facilities.
Judges assess each park put forward for the award against eight strict criteria, including horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability and community involvement.
Cllr Lisa Parker, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for sustainable environment, said: “I’m delighted Caldecott Park has secured a Green Flag Award for an eighth year running.
“It’s a great tribute to the hard work of our parks team, volunteers and residents, who all play a part in making Caldecott Park a place we can be proud of.
“We were also honoured to host the award ceremony at the BENN Hall, welcoming dozens of other Green Flag Award winners from across the Midlands and East of England to Rugby.”
