Marwell Zoo voted pick of the poll

Marwell Zoo is the place Hampshire residents are most proud of, according to the results of an online poll. The New Forest came in close second.

 

There are over 250 species of animals at Marwell Zoological Park, from tiny ants to the tallest giraffe, set in 100 acres of beautiful Hampshire parkland, so no wonder Hampshire residents put it at the top spot, with 30% of the votes.

 

The New Forest matched Marwell throughout the poll, but finally slipped to second with 28% of the votes. A place of fascination and peace, it draws millions of walkers and picnickers, who can help protect the precious balance of nature in the forest by respecting its treasures.

 

Executive Member for Recreation and Heritage, Councillor Margaret Snaith said: "Marwell Zoo can now bask in the knowledge that they are one of Hampshire's most popular attractions as voted by members of the public. It is a wonderful achievement for them."

 

Hampshire County Council took part in the ‘Pride of Place poll' by inviting visitors to click and vote for one of ten locally-nominated top spots on its website. More than 760 people went online to vote for their favourite place in this first national council-led poll.

 

The Pride of Place poll is part of the Government's ‘Connect to your Council' campaign, which aims to encourage citizens to access their local authority services online - anytime, anywhere. People can now use council websites to find out anything from planning information to applying for school places. Alternatively, they can visit www.direct.gov.uk/mycouncil for more details of the range of online services now available.

1. Local authorities which have signed up to the poll have done so voluntarily; not every council in England is involved.

2. The Pride of Place poll is part of the Communities and Local Government's ‘Connect to your Council' campaign which encourages citizens to make their council websites a first port of call for services and information. Residents can now use council websites to find out anything from bin collection rotas to how to apply for school places.
