It has been a momentous week for Bailiff Bridge Memorial Park, with major commemorations and celebrations taking place.

Following the World War One anniversary earlier in the week, yesterday saw the green flag raised in recognition of the park being named one of the best in the country. Malcolm Silkstone, of the Friends of Bailiff Bridge Park group, said: “It’s a great achievement and very poignant we got the award in the same week as the centenary.”
