Connaught Gardens in Sidmouth, Manor Gardens in Exmouth and Seaton Wetlands have all been given the Green Flag Award.

The highly sought-after Keep Britain Tidy honour is a sign to the public these spaces boast the highest environmental standards, are well maintained and have good visitor facilities.

Cllr Geoff Jung, East Devon District Council's portfolio holder for the Environment, said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive these three Green Flag Awards from Keep Britain Tidy for Connaught Gardens, Manor Gardens and Seaton Wetlands. "East Devon is very proud of its open spaces and its hardworking staff and wonderful volunteers.

"Not only do these awards recognise and highlight that people in Sidmouth, Exmouth and Seaton are benefitting from these green spaces of the very highest quality but also the many visitors who visit our beautiful area."
