Enfield Council is calling for all residents to vote for Firs Farm Park in Winchmore Hill, in a competition which could see the space in line for £175k of money to construct a flood relief and cycle path scheme for the park.

The public vote off, which opens today (22 January 2015), will see Firs Farm Park vying for a slice of cash from The Mayor of London’s Big Green Fund together with six other parks London wide.To vote click here: Link

Cllr Chris Bond, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety said “Enfield Council has worked extremely hard with the Friends of Firs Farm Park to get this much loved open space shortlisted in the competition.

“We are up against six other parks London wide, so I am calling on all residents and people interested in our green spaces to get voting to ensure Firs Farm is successful. Our bid will see vital work taking place to build a flood relief scheme and cycle path to ensure Firs Farm Park is even more accessible. We have the support of our partners the Environment Agency, Thames Water, Sustrans and Thames 21.

“So don’t waste any time, get your vote in for Firs Farm Park”.

Toni Guiver, founder member and the Chair of the Friends of Firs Farm Park said “This is a golden opportunity to help transform a dull green space into an exciting area for everyone.

“The aim of the Friends of Firs Farm is that more people will be able to access and enjoy our park; to cycle, run, jog, or just sit and watch the wildlife, to stroll along the paths; taking in all that the new wetlands and surrounding area will have to offer.

“This project has much to offer the community in terms of health, recreation, and education. It is a very exciting project and the Friends hope that you will help the quest to improve this green space for everyone.”
