Hertsmere Borough Council is asking for residents to vote to improve the toddler play area at Furzefield Leisure Centre in Potters Bar as part of the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
The supermarket has teamed up with Groundwork, which sees grants of between £8,000 and £12,000, all raised from the 5p bag levy, being used to fund local projects to create or improve outdoor spaces.
Councillor Brenda Batten, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and health, said: “We want to improve the outdoor toddler play area at Furzefield Leisure Centre and would encourage Tesco shoppers in Potters Bar to vote for us.
“If we receive the highest level of funding, we’ll be able to remove some of the old and outdated wooden play equipment and replace it with three new and exciting pieces of play equipment, as well as general improvements such as a new self-closing gate to increase safety. More votes means more funding and therefore more toddler fun.
“Furzefield playground is open to everyone all year, so improvements to the play area will really benefit the local community.”
Voting is open now in Tesco Potters Bars and will run until Sunday, November 13.
