Parks across Northumberland are hoping to win more prestigious Green Flag Awards.

Organised by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, the accolades recognise and reward the best parks and green spaces across the country, informing visitors that the space boasts very high standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.

Last year, Northumberland’s winning green spaces were Bolam Lake Country Park, Carlisle Park in Morpeth, Ridley Park, Hirst Park, Doctor Pit Park, Alexandra Park, Hexham Parks, Astley Park, Castle Vale and Coronation Parks and Plessey Woods Country Park.

Nominations have now been submitted for 2017, with the same parks put forward. The winners will be announced in the summer.
