Alex Cunningham welcomes Green Flag Awards

Alex Cunningham MP today welcomed the news that two green spaces in Stockton North have been included in the prestigious Green Flag Award Scheme.

Both Charlton’s Pond and Billingham Beck Valley Country Park have been awarded Green Flags, which recognise quality green spaces across the country. A total of 1,200 flags have been awarded this year nationwide.

Reacting to the news, Alex said:

“I am really pleased that decades of hard work by the Local Authority and the local community have paid off. These spaces are treasured by local people and the Green Flags are awards that everyone involved should be proud of.

Green spaces matter to people and it is encouraging that two locations in Stockton North have been recognised with Green Flags.”
