Carrickfergus-based staff from Mid and East Antrim Council have been praised for their efforts after two locations in the town were awarded the prestigious Green Flag.

MEA Mayor Councillor Billy Ashe is pictured with Parks and Countryside development manager, Stephen Daye and some of his hard-working parks staff as they prepare to fly the flag at Oakfield Glen/Bashfordsland Wood and Diamond Jubilee Wood, Whitehead.

Cllr Ashe said: “This visibly demonstrates to the local community and councillors that the sites are being well-managed for the benefit of the local community and local wildlife.

“The more Green Flag Awards a local authority has, the more it demonstrates best value for the council and the local people.”
