Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales, there will be projects benefiting local green spaces in each of Tesco’s 390 regions. The projects will share revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
Highfield Park has been chosen as one of three projects in this region.
The Trust is planning to install some exciting and engaging play equipment on the area adjacent to the Trestle Arts Base in Russet Drive. The equipment, chosen to blend in with the surrounding area, will replace items removed a few years ago for safety reasons and will be aimed at slightly older children (8 -16), providing an area for constructive and safe play.
Tesco shoppers will be given a token with every transaction and encouraged to vote for their favourite local project. The project with the most votes will receive £12,000 followed by £10,000 and then £8,000.
Voting takes place from
Saturday 27th February 2016 until Sunday 6th March 2016
at the following local Tesco stores
Hatfield Road Express London Colney Express Jersey Farm Express Beech Road Express
St Peter’s Street Metro Harpenden Express Harpenden Luton Road Express Wheathampstead Express
Online customers can take their Customer Deliver Note into a store and will be given a voting token. Customers can also take their receipt from another store along to one of the stores hosting the voting for Highfield Park, in order to receive a token to cast their vote.
