Residents are being urged to vote for 4 city parks nominated by local enthusiasts in a national competition. The competition is being run by Fields In Trust – formerly the National Playing Fields Association.
The parks are Preston Park Rockery, Easthill Park, Stoneham Park and Blaker’s Park and votes can be cast online at:- http://www.fieldsintrust.org/bestpark/southeast
Winners are expected to be named in an awards ceremony on November 30.
In 2015 Brighton & Hove City Council won a national category in the awards – being named best local authority partner.
Chair of City in Bloom Denise Taylor said: “What a brilliant opportunity for us to show our appreciation for four of our excellent parks and highlight some of the excellent urban green spaces that continue to be an important part of city life. The work that goes into the upkeep of these parks is critically threatened and we need to showcase what the council and volunteers in this sector can pull off even in this difficult economic climate.”
