PUBLISHED: 10:00 01 September 2018
North Somerset parks are in with a chance of winning a prestigious national award by public vote.
Portishead Lake Grounds, Abbots Pool in Abbots Leigh, Watchhouse Hill in Pill and Trendlewood Community Park in Nailsea were given Green Flag status in July.
Now the organisers are giving the nation the chance to vote for parks and green spaces to receive the People’s Choice Award.
Councillor Peter Bryant, North Somerset’s executive member with responsibility for environment, said: “We are very proud of our green spaces and I would encourage everyone to vote for their favourite.”
Voting closes on September 30 with the top 10 sites being named on October 16.
Paul Todd, Green Flag Award manager, said: “The People’s Choice award is a chance to show how much your favourite park means to you.”
