The annual CPRE Hertfordshire Rural Living Awards, supported by Hertfordshire Life, is open for nominations
Do you know a person or organisation that deserves a big thank you for looking after our beautiful Herts countryside? If so, the Campaign to Protect Rural England Hertfordshire wants to hear about them.
The annual CPRE Hertfordshire Rural Living Awards, supported by Hertfordshire Life, recognises work done by groups, individuals and businesses to improve life and enhance the environment in the county’s villages and our rural spaces. Categories include rural community living, rural environment and rural business in the community, with individual awards for an adult and a young person (up to 21) who have made an outstanding contribution.
Last year’s winners included The Friends of Danesbury Local Nature Reserve in Welwyn, Cottered Voices and Thrift Cottage eco-house and smallholding in Burnham Green.
Gill Bryant of Herts CPRE said, ‘We received lots of entries for these awards last year but we know there is so much more happening across Hertfordshire that needs to be celebrated.’
The closing date for nominations (you can nominate your own group or work too) is May 30. Go to cpreherts.org.uk/awards
Judges will visit nominees over the summer and awards will be presented in October at County Hall in Hertford.
