Picnic lovers have only a few days left to vote for their favourite Norfolk best beauty spots.

Holkham Beach and Hickling Broad are in the running for the Warburtons East Anglia Picnic Awards 2010.

Holkham has been shortlisted in the regional awards for the past two years and was the regional winner two years ago. Hickling is on the shortlist for the second time, while Brandon Country Park near Thetford is another of the 10 sites on the regional shortlist.

Rebecca Worsfold from the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, which looks after Hickling Broad, said: 'It would be fantastic to win the contest. East Anglia is full of great picnicking spots and we are very proud to have been shortlisted for the award, with enough votes we could win the award and be in with a shot of becoming Britain's best picnic site.

The East Anglia winner will receive �500 to go towards the upkeep of the site and go head to head with other regional winners to be crowned Britain's Best Picnic Site. A further cheque for �1,000 will be awarded to the nation's favourite picnic site.
