STAFF at Waseley Hills Country Park are celebrating after the beauty spot was ranked among some of the best in the country.

The popular park, ran by Worcestershire County Council, has maintained its ‘Green Flag’ status for the 14th year in a row.

The accolade is decided by Keep Britain Tidy and, now in its 20th year, recognises the best parks and green spaces across the country.

The flying of the flag shows visitors both the green area and its facilities are of a high standard and being well-maintained by the operator.

Coun Lucy Hodgson, Worcestershire County Council’s cabinet member for localism and communities, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for three of our sites for another year.

“This award recognises and highlights that people in Worcestershire are benefitting from green spaces of the very highest quality.”

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said: “We are delighted to be celebrating another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award scheme, especially as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Awards.

“All the flags flying this year are a testament to the efforts of the thousands of men and women, both staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.”
