WE ALL HAVE A FAVOURITE PARK AND NOW’S THE TIME TO VOTE FOR YOURS

Vote for your favourite park in Hyndburn and show how the UK loves parks.

The experts have had their say in July and seven parks and one open space in Hyndburn were given a prestigious Green Flag Award.

Now, 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.

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.

All you have to do is go to www.greenflagaward.org find your park on the winners map and click the voting button. Once you’ve registered your vote, why not encourage others to get involved too through social media using the hashtag #PeoplesChoice.

Cllr Paul Cox, Cabinet Member for Parks said; “We’re proud to have many Green Flag Award winning parks here in Hyndburn, so please vote for your favourite and have your say in deciding which parks and green spaces should receive the People’s Choice Award.”

Voting is open now 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.”
