Highbridge's Apex Park bids to win 'nation's favourite park' award

Highbridge's Apex Widlife Park is in the running to win the title of 'the nation’s favourite park' and your vote is needed to help it win the crown.

It is one of 1,482 parks across the UK to have been nominated in The People’s Choice Awards, an annual online competition that gives the public the chance to decide which parks flying the Green Flag Award should win the overall award.

To vote for Apex Park, click here and hit the 'vote for this site' button. The vote will close at noon on 30th September and the winner of the 2014 People’s Choice Award will be announced on 16th October.

Paul Todd, Green Flag Award scheme manager, said: "We know how important having access to quality parks and green spaces is to the public. The People’s Choice Award gives them the chance to decide which park or green space deserves the accolade of the nation’s favourite."

"With many award-winning sites to choose from, competition is fierce so we urge everyone to get voting if they want to see their local park pick up the award."

The competition is run by Keep Britain Tidy, the group behind The Green Flag Award scheme. Apex was recently awarded a Green Flag for an eighth year running, as reported here.

The Green Flag Award was first launched in 1996 to recognise and reward the UK’s best green spaces. It is the standard for parks and recognises well managed, high-quality sites that meet the needs of the community.

All Green Flag Award winning parks and green spaces are entered into the annual People’s Choice Award vote, which last year saw thousands of votes recorded and resulted in the crowning of Margam Park in Neath Port Talbot as the People’s Choice.
