In a record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award, Bicclescombe Park in Ilfracombe and Yeo Valley Community is celebrating award success again this year.The news that Ilfracombe’s green space has achieved the Green Flag Award is testament to the hard work and dedication of those who look after them. 2021 is the 17th consecutive year that Bicclescombe Park – owned and managed by North Devon Council with help from the Bicclescombe Park User Group – has achieved Green Flag status.The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.Ward member for Ilfracombe West, Councillor Geoffrey Fowler, says: “In yet another difficult year where outside space has been a haven for a lot of people, Bicclescombe has come up trumps once again.The limited staff, all credit to them, have maintained the park in extremely good condition under the circumstances, as several of our late influx of visitors have testified. Well done to all concerned.” Local News – The Ilfracombe Magazine…
