“We are absolutely delighted to receive Green Flag Awards for six borough managed parks and are thrilled to hear that Sandhurst Town Council and Winkfield Parish Council were also successful in achieving Green Flag Awards again this year.
"We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining these important green spaces to such a high standard.”
