The money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores is being used to pay for projects to improve local green spaces.

Projects will include building new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.

Groundwork, which specialises in transforming communities and the local environment for the better, is administering the funding. It is seeking nominations for parks or open spaces that need a bit of love. These will be shortlisted in each Tesco region and voting will take place in local stores. The nomination form is at groundwork.org.uk/sites/tescocommunityscheme.

The closing date for the first round is Friday, 27 November.
