    by TNR

    huge boost of over £18million has been given to six of the UKs public parks by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and BIG Lottery Fund (BIG). The cash injection, backed by environmentalist and TV presenter Chris Packham (Springwatch and The Really Wild Show), has been distributed to parks in Leicester, Bolton, Trafford, Middlesbrough, Letchworth Garden City and Southampton. However, there are fears that all the good work achieved through lottery investment over last 15 years could so easily be undone without long term support from councils to maintain the parks
