Connaught Gardens, Manor Gardens and Seaton Wetlands were all winners.

A trio of East Devon green spaces have won the prestigious Green Flag award.

Connaught Gardens, Manor Gardens and Seaton Wetlands have received the international accreditation - which recognises well managed parks and green areas.

East Devon District Council, which owns and manages the three sites, is celebrating the Wetlands first win.

Councillor Tom Wright, EDDC portfolio holder for the environment, said all three awards were well deserved.

He added: “I am delighted that Seaton Wetlands has been recognised and it joins Manor Gardens and Connaught Gardens as Green Flag sites which are excellently managed by the district council.”
