Marine Cove needs your help to become 'nation's favourite park'

Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens are also in the running to win the title of 'the nation’s favourite park' and residents' votes are needed to help it win the crown.

The Cove is among 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 the Cove, 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.

Apex Park in Highbridge was also named thi week as another local park to be entered into the competition, as we reported here.

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. The Cove was recently awarded a Green Flag.
