Vote for your favourite park and show how the UK loves parks
The experts at Keep Britain Tidy have had their say and in July Collett Park, Shepton Mallet was awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award. Collett Park is the first Green Flag park to be awarded in Mendip.
The Award Scheme is asking the nation to have its say and decide which parks and green spaces should receive the People’s Choice Award for being the UK’s favourites. To vote for your favourite park, all you have to do is go to www.greenflagaward.org find your park on the winners map and click the voting button.
Whether you enjoy visiting a park or green space to play football, walk the dog, exercise or simply get away from the hustle and bustle, if you think your favourite deserves to be in the top 10 People’s Choice then cast your vote.
Once you’ve registered your vote, why not encourage others to get involved too through social media using the hashtag #PeoplesChoice.
Voting opened on 1 September and closes 30 September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16 October.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award Manager said: This year 1883 parks and green spaces met the tough standards demanded by our Green Flag Award Judges but we want to know which parks the UK public love the most. “The People’s Choice award is a chance to show how much your favourite park means to you. If it’s worth shouting about, make your voice heard and vote now.”
