Community supports Highbridge's Apex Park for UK Best Park award

Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge residents are being encouraged to vote for Apex Park to become the UK's Best Park.

Sedgemoor District Council has nominated the popular Highbridge park to become 'best park' as part of the 2016 'Fields in Trust Awards'.

Voting is underway online and residents can show their support by voting here before the deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 9th November.

Burnham-On-Sea's MP James Heappey gave his support this week, druing a visit to the park with local residents.

"To have one of the best parks in the country here in Burnham and Highbridge is fantastic," the MP told

"We need to make sure that everyone votes for the park to become the best park in the country. To win would be wonderful recognition for the work by Sedgemoor District Council and the volunteers at the Friends of Apex Park who do such a wonderful job in making this a superb facility for the community. There is something here for everyone which makes the park so wonderful for the two towns."

Voting runs until 5pm on Wednesday 9th November with the winning park announced at the Fields in Trust Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 30th November.

Fields in Trust was founded back in 1925 as the National Playing Fields Association by King George V. Its mission is the same now and as it was then: to ensure that everyone – young or old, able or disabled, and wherever they live – should have access to free, local outdoor space for sport, play and recreation.
