Bude Canal and Marshes wins top award for the FIFTH year in a row
A Prestigious GREEN FLAG
The Bude Canal and Marshes have been awarded the Green Flag from Keep Britain Tidy for the fifth consecutive year. The award is a sign to visitors that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
Paula Dolphin, Liberal Democrat Cornwall Councillor for Grenville and Statton and a former Mayor of Bude, said "Bude Canal and Marshes is one of the reasons tourists visit this part of Cornwall. As the chair of the advisory panel I know how difficult it is to be awarded a Green Flag for the fifth time and we couldn't have done it without the passionate volunteers that help our team."
You can vote for Bude to be your favourite Green Flag Park by visiting www.greenflagaward.org.uk
