Have YOU Voted for Your Favourite Park Yet?
St.James' Park shortlisted in National Lottery Awards!
Exciting news - St.James' Park
has been shortlisted in this year's National Lottery Awards!
Over 900 applications were made, and St.James' Park has made it through to the last 49. We've been nominated in the Environment category - there are 7 finalists in each of 7 categories, so we're up against 6 other projects. The awards are decided by public vote (online and telephone), with voting open from Wednesday 19th June to Wednesday 24th July.
The winners of each category, to be announced in August, will receive a National Lottery Awards trophy and a £2000 cash prize to be spent on their project. The awards ceremony will be held at Pinewood Studios in September, and will be broadcast on BBC One later that month.
We hope that you'll agree with us that St.James' Park is something that we can all be very proud of, and it would be great not only to win the trophy but to publicise the good work to which we've all contributed here in Southampton over the last 7 years to a national audience.
So please vote, ask your family to vote, and ask your friends to vote for St.James' Park!
