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.
