THE Moor and Tatton Park are among the seven Cheshire East’s treasured green spaces that have yet again scooped prestigious national Green Flags.

The council and hardworking volunteers have ensured that the awards, given by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and Green Flag, remain with Cheshire East’s parks and green areas.

Tatton Park has retained its Green Flag and Green Heritage Site accreditation for the 10th year running, and The Moor has received the award six years in a row.

Clr David Topping, Cabinet member in charge of the environment, said: “I know many residents really treasure their local park, green space or nature reserve and we’re delighted and really proud that seven sites across Cheshire East have again won recognition with these prestigious Green Flag Awards.

“This is really positive news and reflects the Council’s commitment to ensuring Cheshire East is a green and sustainable place that is attractive to residents and visitors alike.”

The other five locations that secured the award were Bollington Recreation Ground, Brereton Heath Local Nature Reserve, Congleton Park, Sandbach Cemetery and Tegg’s Nose Country Park.
