A BEAUTY spot near Clanfield has been recognised as one of Britain’s best green spaces for the sixth year in a row.

Queen Elizabeth Country Park was awarded the Green Flag award.

The flags reward the best public parks and the beauty spot impressed judges with its excellent use of green space, variety of attractions and well-maintained facilities.

The area, which includes 2,000 acres of woodland, is managed by Hampshire County Council in partnership with the Forestry Commission.

Councillor Keith Chapman, who is in charge of recreation at Hampshire County Council, said: ‘This award is a great acknowledgement of the outstanding efforts by staff and volunteers who work very hard to maintain the country park.

‘It provides a wonderful local attraction that offers a number of facilities that are available to enjoy for free.’

Last year the country park was one of 10 in the UK to win the People’s Choice Award.
