That statement above - 'and Gallagher Park has only 14 nominations....... is not correct - should have said :-  ...and Gallagher Park has 13 other parks nominated against it, CL & me have voted. :)

Voting began over a week ago Eggs, in the first few days loads of Bedlington folk have stated on social media that they have voted.

It's just that I haven't seen one comment, on any of the sites I visited, from anyone that has voted John so I thought I would get pushy :D

I'm torn between Ridley Park and Gallagher Park, hmm, exactly where is Gallagher Park?

It's the land where the two pits connected to each other = Behind Rothesay Terrace up to Vulcan Place - don't think I have seen a photo showing the boundary of the park so this is where I think the boundary lines are  :-

Can't find anything on line to say which park won only know that Gallagher Park was not one of the top 4 that the winner would come from.

The top four were : -

Craigavon City Park – described as “a great mix of lake, woodland, open green space, bike trails, water sports, paths for cycling and walking”.
Roath Park – celebrated as “a place for both young and old alike” – planting and historical features are supplemented by the opportunity for “ice cream or a cup of tea in the café”.
Rouken Glen Park – UK’s Best Park winner in 2016 – makes a repeat appearance, identified as “a fantastic place for families to enjoy the outdoors”.
Stanley Park – described as “fabulous” and “the centre point of Blackpool” in its nomination.

    • A brand new service will offer life-long support to people with autism in South Shields.
      The new 'autism hub', opened by the mayor and mayoress of South Tyneside this month, will offer occupational therapy, mental health help and peer support for people with the condition throughout the area.
      Councillors say they're responded to a need created by an above-average number of people with an autism diagnosis in the borough, as parents, carers and those with a diagnosis told the council they needed more local support.
      One of those who can't wait to start using the new hub is little Jak Brunton, and his mum Jay.
      For Jak, who turns four on Monday, regular sessions at a Toby Henderson Trust centre in Bedlington have been a lifeline, helping him connect with his family and supporting them as they understand his needs.
      The Jarrow family travel at least once a week to Northumberland for invaluable one-to-one sessions, so the opening of a hub close to home in South Shields will make a huge difference to their lives.
