Sponsored by Warburtons Bread as part of National Bread Week.

Elaine Smith, Chairman of Friends of Stanley Park and Blackpool Civic Trust, is leading a campaign for the seaside town’s park to be recognised as the best spot to picnic in the UK!

Stanley Park is battling it out against nine other sites across the country to win the prestigious title of Warburtons National Picnic Site of the year.

During May, hundreds of fans of Stanley Park voted on-line for the site, situated on East Park Drive, in the award’s regional round. Votes were counted and verified and the site was crowned as the best place to picnic in the north west!

Not satisfied with just a regional win, Elaine said: “We want to go all the way – we are delighted with the regional title but are urging the people of Blackpool to get behind one of its most treasured green spaces and help put Stanley Park on the map. We want to attract more visitors to the Park and the region over the summer months. We need your votes,”.

To vote for Stanley Park in the final round, log onto www.welovebread.co.uk and register your vote today. Alternatively, send your vote to c/o Brand Development, Warburtons, Hereford House, Bolton, BL1 8JB.

The closing date to vote is Friday, 5th June. Warburtons Best Picnic Spot 2009 will be announced week commencing 15th June 2009. The winning site will receive a cheque for £1,000 from the family bakers.
