A Gants Hill business owner hopes the area’s new Purple Flag status will put it “back on the map” and attract visitors.
Residents, councillors and business owners came together to accept the award which recognises the town’s performance in the evening and is tested on its range of venues, transport, crime, cleanliness and character.
Enzo Tavoussi, owner of Enzo’s Pizzeria, in Cranbrook Road, said: “I feel and hope that the Purple Flag puts Gants Hill back on the map.
“That will encourage the people to see what we have here, come and see what it’s about.
“We want people to know that this is a good area where people can spend some money, have some lunch, drink a coffee, enjoy a nice meal and other things. I’m very proud that we were able to get the Purple Flag.”
