Bancroft Gardens gets prestigious Green Flag Award

Stratford Editorial 24th Jul, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE FLAG of success was flying high on Bancroft this week.

Coun Mike Brain gathered with council staff as they celebrated the Stratford park receiving a prestigious Green Flag Award.

The national awards – run by Keep Britain Tidy – are widely regarded as a benchmark of a quality park or green space, which is seen to be welcoming, clean, safe and secure.

And the Stratford park now joins some 1,600 other well-maintained gardens across the country having been awarded the prestigious accolade.

Coun Brain said: “Given the volume of residents and visitors using the site throughout the year, it’s always a challenge to ensure they are kept to the highest possible standard.

“However this award recognises the fact people in Stratford are benefiting from a green space of the very highest quality.”
