The recognition has been awarded by environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy.

“The Green Flag award is recognition of all the hard work our staff carry out on a daily basis, along with our volunteers and friends of parks groups to help keep our parks maintained and safe for everyone to visit.
“It is due to their efforts that we are once again celebrating this success and I am delighted their dedication has once again been rewarded.”
Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award Scheme Manager, Paul Todd, MBE said: “I would like to congratulate everyone in Havering for achieving Green Flag Awards.
