Longford Park is in line for a £50,000 lottery award – if it gets enough votes in a national competition. Longford Park has been shortlisted to receive the money from the People's Millions award. The money would be used to transform the park which borders Chorlton by creating a new garden in the former rose, ornamental and water gardens. The area would also become an educational resource for schools and youth groups.The award is being organised by the Big Lottery Fund in conjunction with ITV, and Longford Park will be featured on Granada TV's evening news programme this evening.
Details about how to vote are available here: http://www.peoplesmillions.org.uk/regions/granada/projects/the-greening-of-longford-park
