BURNLEY residents are being urged to vote for their favourite park in a national poll.
The annual People's Choice Award, managed by Keep Britain Tidy, is now open, giving the public the power to decide which one of the 1,448 Green Flag sites should be named park of the year with an online vote.
For the 4th year running, all six of Burnley’s main parks (Thompson, Towneley, Queen’s, Scott, Ightenhill and Padiham Memorial) have won the prestigious Green Flag award.
To vote, visit www.greenflagaward.org.uk and select North West on the map, then search for your favourite.
Coun John Harbour, Burnley Council’s executive member for leisure and culture, said: “Burnley has some great parks. Local people know that, now it’s time they got some national recognition. I hope residents take a few moments to vote for their favourite park and see if we can be represented among Britain’s favourite parks.”
The vote will close at noon on October 1 and the winner will be announced on October 9, at a ceremony in London.
