PUBLISHED: 17:00 23 August 2018
A 'much-loved' Exmouth green space has been recognised as one of the best in the world for the 14th year running.
Manor Gardens is one of three parks in East Devon to be given the prestigious Green Flag Award – the mark of a quality park or green space.
The park is also among more than 1,800 in the UK to have been recognised as one of the best in the world by the scheme.
Connaught Gardens, in Sidmouth, and Seaton Wetlands were also given the Green Flag Award. All three are owned and managed by East Devon District Council (EDDC).
Cllr Tom Wright, EDDC portfolio holder for the environment, said: “The Green Flag awards for Connaught Gardens in Sidmouth and Manor Gardens in Exmouth are a well-deserved tribute to the volunteers, the respective town ‘in bloom’ teams and the staff of EDDC who work so hard to create and maintain these wonderful gardens that residents and visitors enjoy and value so much. A really outstanding effort by all involved.”
