Langtons Gardens in Hornchurch joins 13 other Havering parks in being recognised by the Green Flag award scheme, the highest the borough has ever achieved.

Awarded by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, a Green Flag signifies high standards and facility excellent in a park or open space within the UK.

Osman Dervish, cabinet member for environment, said: "This is the most successful year ever; we are absolutely delighted to receive Green Flag Award for Langtons Gardens for the first time as well as retaining the awards for our other 13 parks, some of which have held this status now for over a decade.

"We know what our parks and open spaces mean to our residents and visitors. The Green Flag awards are also recognition of all the hard work put in by council staff as well as members and volunteers from the friends of parks groups. This dedication has been rewarded and our parks can be enjoyed by everyone across the borough."
