Dorchester's Borough Gardens has scooped a national award.

It has been named as one of the best in the country.

The Gardens will receive both the Green Flag Award and a Green Heritage Award, telling visitors that the park is well-maintained and managed with excellent facilities.

This year there has been a record number of parks and green spaces receiving awards this year.

The Mayor of Dorchester, Councillor Andy Canning, will be raising the new Green Flag at 12:30pm on Wednesday 25th July as part of the 'Love Parks' celebrations when the Borough Gardens will be full of visitors enjoying the various events going on.

Dorchester Town Council's Compliance Manager, Peter Mullins, said: "It's all down to the staff and the pride they take in their work."

Award-winning sites have the opportunity to receive a further award from the Green Flag Plus Partnership, the People's Choice Award, voted by the public. Visit http://greenflag.keepbritaintidy.org/ to register your vote.
