Show your love for your park
this '#LoveParks Week'
JOIN in with the 100 million visits to
UK parks this '#LoveParks Week,' running until 23 July 2017 and
tell the world why you love your park. 'Love Parks Week,'
now in its 11th year, is Britain's biggest celebration of these valuable spaces.
Wirral Council is joining the celebration, and encouraging everyone to share why
they love Wirral's parks.
This #LoveParks Week, we are encouraging as many people as possible to go out
and enjoy their local park. Members of our many "Friends Groups"
will be out and about so feel free to come and say hello, grab the "I love
my park because …" board and snap away or take a selfie and let's all
get sharing those fantastic photos of why we love our parks and don't forget to
use the hashtag #LoveParks.
Using this tide of public support, with people sharing how much parks matter to
them and why, environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy will campaign to secure
the quality of parks for future generations to enjoy.
Paul Todd, Keep Britain Tidy's Green Flag Award manager said:- "We believe
that everybody, wherever they live, should have access to a quality green space.
We are asking everyone to join us in showing how much they care and helping us
to protect parks for future generations."
Cllr Phillip Brightmore, Wirral Council's Cabinet member for Environment said:-
"Wirral is home to some of the UK's best parks and green spaces. This
makes Wirral such a great place to live. They are a credit to our staff,
volunteers and Community Groups that help to maintain our local area to such a
high standard. During Love Parks week take the opportunity to visit your local
park and see for yourself the great green spaces we have right on our doorstep."
