The flag which recognises and rewards best parks and green spaces in the country was formally raised at an event attended by MP Chris Elmore, Deputy Leader of Bridgend Council Huw David, Cllrs Charles Smith, Ceri Reeves and John McCarthy, Deputy Mayor Cherie Jones as well as members of the board of trustees, volunteers and staff.
Chris Elmore MP said:
“The award really is well deserved. The park is fantastically beautiful and a pleasure to be in. This is a real testament to the team of staff and volunteers which make the park a great day out.”
Councillor Huw David described Bryngarw as:
“The jewel in Bridgend’s crown.” As he congratulated the team at the opening.
Now managed by Awen Cultural Trust in partnership with Bridgend County Borough, Bryngarw has demonstrated to Keep Wales Tidy that the park is meeting the very best standards in environmental and heritage conservation, and that it is well maintained, provides excellent facilities and safe access to its 200,000 visitors a year, in order to achieve Green Flag status.
