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 big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
