Two of our areas best-loved open spaces are in line for a celebrated national award and you can help one of them achieve it by voting online. Castle Vale Centre Park and New Hall Valley Country Park may be very different outside spaces but both provide green, clean and well-maintained leisure facilities for local residents and the wider local community. Now you can vote for either of these parks and help one win the coveted site of the year award under the Green Flag scheme.
Tyburn Ward councillor Ann Holtom has urged local residents to log on to the Green Flag Award scheme website at: http://www.keepbritaintidy.org/GreenFlag and follow the instructions there to vote for their favourite park. Cllr Holtom said, "Our area has lots of lovely open spaces and many are now in contention for this important prize. It is great that local people should have the chance to vote for their favourite park and I urge everyone to have their say. "
