Clacton Seafront and Marina Gardens and Crescent Garden in Frinton on Sea have been awarded Green Flags this year.
“I am delighted by this news as I think it is very important that my constituents have access to good quality green spaces", says Douglas.
The Green Flag Award Scheme has been successful in raising the standards of Britain’s gardens and parks. It is a highly regarded award and recognises green spaces that communities treasure.
“Parks and gardens are very valuable to people and increasing numbers of local people are contributing to these projects, to help their communities .This is a good example of Big Society in action, and anyone who has helped to get this result deserves to be applauded”.
