Six Douglas areas maintain Green Flag status

Six areas in Douglas have been awarded Green Flag status for the second year running.

Douglas Borough Council confirmed Noble's Park, the Marine Gardens, Douglas Golf Course, Douglas Head, Hutchinson Square and Douglas Borough Crematorium and Cemetery retained their Green Flags as part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign.

The awards take into account environmental policies as well as community involvement.

Douglas is the only local authority on the Island to have been awarded Green Flags, which the Council says is down to reducing its carbon footprint and using renewable energy technology.

The awards are handed out in the British Isles, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
