Colin Nicol Chairman of the Friends of Park Fields said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the 9th year running. Park Fields is a beautiful location and receives over 25,000 visits a year by members of the local and wider community’’.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our hard-working volunteers, 120 members and the FOPF committee whose work, support and dedication help make this a very special place.  Our thanks also go to Tim Lloyd, of the Green Spaces Department of our local Council, for his support and practical help, which he gives unstintingly, whenever we make a request for help or advice.”

 

“Over the next 12 months we have plans to work with local schools to enhance the educational area with wild flowers and pond life and we are currently raising money to carry out a hedge laying project’’

 

Dominic Roberts, Mayor of Neston said ""once again this is fantastic news for our town and I congratulate everyone who has been involved. The fields are a real asset for our residents and attract visitors to the area".
