He said: "A big thank you to our work team and Friends of Mesnes Park who continue to make this jewel in the crown a well-maintained and safe landscape for all families who attend our great park.

"Also I would like to congratulate all of our four parks that again have been recognised with the Green Flag awards – Alexandra Park, Jubilee Park, Pennington Hall Park and Mesnes Park.”
