Penzance's Rec is judged one of the best in the country
A PENZANCE park is officially one of the best in the country – said a Green Flag Award judge.
The Princess May Recreation Trust has recently been awarded a Green Flag Community Award, a sign to visitors the park is well maintained and well managed, with excellent facilities.
The rec was also awarded a level 5 "outstanding" award in the South West in Bloom 'It's Your Neighbourhood Awards' at the ceremony in Truro, as well as a Full Bloom Award at the Cornwall in Bloom awards ceremony.
In addition, trust volunteer Martin Durrant picked up a nomination for Local Hero Award, which he said came as a total surprise as he didn't know he had been nominated.

"Cormac Solutions Ltd is committed to working in partnership with local volunteers and supports them wherever they can."
Melville Durrant, chairman of the Princess May Recreation Trust, said he was delighted the park had been recognised as a well-maintained and managed green space and thanked the small group of volunteers and also the continuing working partnership with Cormac Solutions and other partner agencies.
