Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge residents are being encouraged to vote for the town’s Marine Cove Gardens and Apex Park to become the UK’s favourite parks of the year.

Earlier this summer, Keep Britain Tidy awarded Green Flag Awards to both Marine Cove and Apex Park, and now residents can have their say in a national vote.

To vote, go to www.greenflagaward.org and find the local parks on the winners map, then click the voting button to make your voice counted in the People’s Choice Award.

Voting opened on 1st September and closes 30th September, with the top 10 sites being announced on 16th October.

Once readers have registered their vote, they can encourage others to get involved as well through social media using the hashtag #PeoplesChoice.

Paul Todd, Green Flag Award Manager said: “This year, 1883 parks and green spaces met the tough standards demanded by our Green Flag Award Judges but we want to know which parks the UK public love the most.”

“The People’s Choice award is a chance to show how much your favourite park means to you. If it’s worth shouting about, make your voice heard and vote now.”
