Vote for Wyndham Park as your favourite Green Flag park

SKDC is asking residents in South Kesteven and further afield to vote for Wyndham Park as their favourite green flag park in the country.

The annual People's Choice award has been launched that gives the public a chance to vote for their favourite green flag open space that was acknowledged in the latest round of the awards in July.

Wyndham Park scooped the accolade as a green flag park for a fifth year running and now the Council wants as many residents, park visitors and supporters to vote for it to show how much it is valued.

To vote, simply go to select East Midlands on the interactive map, locate Wyndham Park by clicking on more details and then choosing the vote for this site button.

As it’s the 20th year of the Green Flag Award, vote co-ordinators Keep Britain Tidy have declared there will this year be a top ten voted by the public rather than an overall winner.

The vote closes at noon on Friday September 30 and the ten most popular parks and green spaces in the UK will be announced in October.

Paul Todd, Green Flag Award manager said: "We all have a favourite park, whether it's our local green space or a special park we'll travel miles to visit.

"Following another record-breaking year for the Green Flag Award, we are urging everyone to vote for their own favourite park, so we can put together a list of the ten most popular parks in the UK. It will be great to celebrate ten of the public's favourite parks and for them to become the People's Choice 2016."

Last year saw more than 30,000 votes from the public, with Victoria Park in London's Tower Hamlets crowned as the People's Choice.
