Brexit trade fears to be raised at MP lunch

Have your say

TWO of Fareham borough’s parks have kept their Green Flag Award for the fourth and fifth consecutive years.

The Sensory Garden on Osborn Road in Fareham and Holly Hill Woodland Park in Sarisbury Green have both retained the honour.

The award is a national accolade that shows visitors the park is well maintained and well managed, with excellent facilities.

They are two of a record number of 1,424 UK sites which have been awarded a flag this year.

Councillor Connie Hockley, who is in charge of leisure and community for Fareham, said: ‘Congratulations to all those officers and volunteers in Fareham who work so hard to ensure our borough remains at such a high award winning standard.

‘I am delighted that both of these wonderful parks retain their Green Flags.’

The flags will be raised next week as part of the national Love Parks Week. More details about the scheme can be found at
