Papplewick Village Playing Fields has been nominated as one of the UK’s Best Parks in the Fields in Trust Awards and now it’s down to residents and visitors to make it a winner.
Papplewick Parish Council is calling on people from across the borough to help their play area make the shortlist for the UK’s Best Park by voting on the Fields in Trust website.
The park is a popular destination for visitors from across the borough and also plays host to several events in the village, including the annual bonfire party.
It faces stiff competition from 19 other green areas in the Central England competition category, including two other parks in Nottinghamshire.
The three parks with the most votes will each go through to the final, with the winner of the UK’s Best Park Award being announced at a lavish ceremony taking place at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Wednesday, December 2.
People have until Wednesday, November 25 to visit http://www.fieldsintrust.org/bestpark/nominations and vote for their favourite park.
The awards are being organised by Fields in Trust, who are the only national charity that protects the parks, playing fields and playgrounds in the UK. It was founded in 1925 by King George V and protects over 2,500 sites from development.
