FOR THE fourteenth year in a row a Sandhurst park has been branded with a mark of excellence. 

Sandhurst Memorial Park scooped the international Green Flag which recognises well managed, clean and safe parks. 

The Memorial Park won the plaudit in a joint application with Shepherd Meadows. 

Residents recently came together to celebrate Sandhurst’s parks during #LoveParks week to say what they loved about their local park.

Councillor John Porter, Sandhurst Town Council’s Chairman of Leisure, said: “We are very pleased that Sandhurst has been recognised as having one of the best parks in the country.

“We know how much our residents value our green spaces. It is really important they have a wonderful place for families to visit and spend their free time, and the opportunity to enjoy first class facilities in their local area.

“However this success would not be possible without the hard work of the park staff, and I would like to give a special thanks to head groundsman Nick and all of his team for their tremendous work and dedication.”

A total of 1,797 parks, gardens, cemeteries, universities, museums, hospitals, shopping centres and canals across the country were this year awarded Green Flag status by the Keep Britain Tidy charity.

Sandhurst’s success followed a joint application between Bracknell Forest Council and Sandhurst Town Council.
