Green flags are flying high across our Borough's parks this week

Jubilee Park in Ashton, Pennington Hall Park in Leigh, and Alexandra Park in Wigan have all been awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award - which means the space boasts the highest possible standards and is beautifully maintained - for the 13th year running.

Mesnes Park, also in Wigan, has been recognised for the sixth year running and,

a fifth green space maintained and managed by volunteer group the Bridgers has also been recognised once again.

Colliers Corner, Howe Bridge which is supported by Wigan Council’s improve a green space initiative, scooped ANOTHER community award and celebrated with a flag raising ceremony earlier this week.
