BURNLEY Council has urged residents to vote for one its six Green Flag status parks in a national competition.
Thompson, Towneley, Queen’s, Scott, Ightenhill and Padiham Memorial parks can all be nominated for the annual People’s Choice Award, organised by Keep Britain Tidy.
Councillor John Harbour, Burnley Council’s executive member for leisure and culture, said: “Burnley has some great parks. Local people know that, now it’s time they got some national recognition.
“I hope residents take a few moments to vote for their favourite park and see if we can be represented among Britain’s favourite parks.”
Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award scheme manager said: “Our judges have decided on this year’s winners of the coveted Green Flag Award but the public now have the opportunity to decide which park or green space deserves The People's Choice Award.”
