District gains Green Flag honours
The quality of Canterbury’s green spaces has been recognised with the district winning four coveted Green Flag environmental awards.
These include Whitstable gaining two accolades in the form of Duncan Down for the 14th time, as well at Whitstable Castle for a fifth time in eight years. There was also a repeat success for Reculver Country Park, and Westgate Parks in Canterbury gained honours for a third time in succession.
The national Green Flag scheme recognises parks and green spaces that have high standards of management, follow environmentally-friendly practices and involve the community to create attractive places for people and wildlife to enjoy.
