A park in St Albans has been shortlisted as one of the country’s best – and the MP for the area is urging her constituents to support the nomination in a public vote.

Verulamium Park has been nominated for the “UK’s best park as voted by you award”. 

Over the last few weeks, 360 nominations have been received by Fields in Trust for parks and green spaces that are a much-loved part of their local communities.

St Albans MP Anne Main said: “I am delighted Verulamium Park has been nominated for this award. It is a wonderful place that so many in our community enjoy.

“I am hopeful we will get the votes to win this coveted award.”
