The district council is asking local residents to vote Grantham’s Wyndham Park as their favourite park in the UK to help scoop a national award.

This year a record breaking 1,582 parks and green spaces were awarded the prestigious international Green Flag Award, including Wyndham Park.

Now the annual People’s Choice award is open giving the public a chance to vote for their favourite, including the town’s flagship park.

The vote is now open and will close at noon on September 30 with the winner announced in October.

To vote, go to www.greenflagaward.org, select your country or region on the interactive map, find Wyndham Park, your favourite park or green space, and click the ‘vote for this site’ button.

Paul Todd, Green Flag Award manager, said, “We all have a favourite park, whether it’s our local green space or a special park we’ll travel miles to visit. Following another record breaking year for the Green Flag Award, we are urging everyone to vote for their own favourite park, so we can crown one of these 1,582 special parks as the People’s Choice 2015.”

All Green Flag Award winning sites are entered into the annual People’s Choice Award vote. Last year saw more than 35,000 votes from the public, with Victoria Park in London’s Tower Hamlets receiving thousands of votes to be crowned as the People’s Choice.
