GREEN flags have been given to two of Rutland’s nicest parks.
The award, which shows visitors that a park is well-maintained, well-managed and excellent facilities, has been given to Cutts Close in Oakham and Rutland.
Mayor of Oakham Joyce Lucas was delighted the Green Flag had been awarded to Cutts Close.
She said: “The awarding of Green Flag status to the park is the culmination of a number of years of hard work and investment.”
The Green Flags at Rutland Water will be displayed at all the reservoir’s car parks.
Visitor operations manaer at Anglian Water Kevin Appleton said: “We have always felt that Rutland Water offered something very special but to have that confirmed and recognised in this way is fantastic.”
