Last week to vote for Telford Town Park to win People’s Choice Award

Vote for Telford’s favourite park this September, as Telford Town Park is nominated for the People’s Choice award. The experts have had their say and in July Telford Town Park was given a prestigious Green Flag Award.

Last week to vote for Telford Town Park to win People’s Choice 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 Telford’s beauty spot to play football, walk the dog, exercise or simply get away from the hustle and bustle, if you think Telford Town Park deserves to be in the top 10 People’s Choice then cast your vote.

All you have to do is go to 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.

Councillor John Minor, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Green Spaces and Parks, said “In the year Telford has turned 50, Telford Town Park has seen some fantastic improvements from various legacy funds.

It would be great to see some further recognition for the park, we know how much quality green spaces and parks are valued by residents and visitors.”

Chris Pettman, Chairman of Friends of the Town Park said “This has been an incredible year at the Town Park. From the first ever Sakura (Cherry Blossom) festival organised by the FOTTP to major pathway improvements at the Chelsea and Maxell Gardens. The sunshine has shown the park at its very best, a beautiful environment in which all of the family can have fun.”

Voting opens 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.”

Paul Rabbitts Head of Parks, Open Spaces & Projects, whose Cassiobury Park was among the top 10 winners last year said:
“Cassiobury Park is often referred to as the jewel in our crown here in Watford. We are immensely proud of it and we truly believe it is one of the finest parks in the country and are delighted it was voted as one of the top ten parks last year. We will certainly be hoping it is as popular again this year.”
