Weymouth and Portland gardens receive Green Flag Awards for excellence

Three public gardens in Weymouth and Portland are among the best in Britain after winning Green Flag Awards from the charity Keep Britain Tidy.

greenhillSandsfoot Gardens and Greenhill Gardens in Weymouth and Easton Gardens in Portland all receive the prestigious awards. They are maintained by Weymouth and Portland Borough Council’s parks and gardens staff along with volunteers from community groups.

Greenhill Gardens, which now has its ninth Green Flag, first won the award in 2006. Easton Gardens gained the honour in 2007 and now has its eight Green Flags. Sandsfoot Gardens celebrated the opening of the castle and attained Green Flag status in 2012 and will now have four of the awards.

Councillor Andy Blackwood, the borough council’s community facilities briefholder, said: “It’s an amazing achievement to win these awards once again and is testament to the hard work of the parks and gardens team and community volunteers. I’d like to thank the Friends of Greenhill Gardens, Easton Community Group and the Friends of the Rodwell Trail and Sandsfoot Gardens for their continued efforts to ensure that these places remain a fantastic place for residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Trevor Collins, chairman of the Friends of Greenhill Gardens, congratulated the council’s parks and gardens staff. He said: “It is a pleasure for the Friends of Greenhill Gardens to run events in the gardens raising funds to enable projects such as the building of the community bandstand to enhance the beauty of the plants and flowers.”
Easton Gardens is noted for its mature trees and a play area, the seafront Greenhill Gardens has a putting green, a bowling green, tennis courts and a café, and Sandsfoot Gardens counts the remains of a Tudor castle in the grounds as its distinctive attraction.

The Green Flag awards were launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the best green spaces in the country.
