Green Flags raised in Potters Bar

GREEN flags were raised at ceremonies in two public parks in Potters Bar on Friday.

Hertsmere mayor Rosemary Gilligan hoisted the ensigns at Oakmere and Parkfield, to celebrate the award of Green Flag status to each park.

She was joined at each ceremony by a number of guests, including Potters Bar councillors Shirley Legate, John Donne and Doreen Scivyer and Donald Graham, the chief executive of Hertsmere Borough Council.

The parks earned Green Flag status in July, following an inspection by a panel of judges.

Council parks officer Aaron Niblett told the Potters Bar Edition: “The judges said that the parks were very well presented and captured the enthusiastic support of the management team, contractors and the friends group.
