Tivoli was delighted to recognise its commitment to the highest environmental standards and celebrate with Arun District Council as four green flags were awarded at Mewsbrook Park, Norfolk Gardens, Marine Park Gardens and Hotham Park.
These four parks are among a record-breaking 1,883 UK parks and green spaces that will receive a prestigious Green Flag Award this year – the mark of a quality park or green space.
This international award is a sign to the public that these four green spaces boast the highest possible environmental standards, are beautifully maintained and have excellent visitor facilities.
Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said:
Arun District Council first received a Green Flag Award for Mewsbrook Park 14 years ago, since then we have successfully retained awards for not only Mewsbrook, but also Marine Park Gardens and Hotham Park. In 2018 we are absolutely delighted that Norfolk Gardens has received a Green Flag Award for first time.
We know how much quality green spaces matter to residents and visitors, and this award celebrates the dedication that goes into maintaining our parks and greenspaces to such a high standard.
Our thanks too must go to our contractors Tivoli Group Limited, specifically to the site-based staff who do so much in maintaining these wonderful parks. Their investment at Wildforest Falls (Hotham Park) and Buccaneer Bay (Norfolk Gardens) Adventure Golf courses have also contributed towards achieving this recognition.
Working in partnership is the key to achieving excellence in delivering service quality whilst realising efficiencies and savings and in this way, together with our clients, we achieve clean, safe and green parks and open spaces which continue to win awards year after year.
Chris McLain, Chief Executive Officer, Tivoli Group Ltd, said:
we are proud that the parks and open spaces we maintain have been recognised in this way. Not only is it testament to the high quality horticultural practices delivered by our staff, but also to the positive action we take to meet budgetary challenges in these continuing times of austerity. We are committed to developing new approaches to our services and draw on a high degree of flexibility and commercial expertise to ensure that we are able to respond to our client’s changing needs and continue to provide safe, clean, secure high quality public spaces that our communities can use and enjoy
