A POPULAR Eastbourne park has retained its Green Flag status.

The Friends of Princes Park Eastbourne said this morning: “We are excited to announce that Princes Park has retained its Green Flag award status for the coming year!!!

“A big thank you goes out, to all of you love and help care for the park.”

The Green Flag Award is an accreditation given to publicly accessible parks and open spaces to promote standards of good management and best-practice amongst the green space sector. 

It now has the attraction of Perch Princes Park  as well, which is proving very popular.
