Residents may be interested in these awards recognising projects that improve the quality of countryside life. CPRE are a countryside charity who run these awards every other year. If you know anyone with a relevant project then it might be worth sharing this with them.
From Su Waldron, Administrator, CPRE Norfolk:
Looking after the countryside, improving life for Norfolk communities and helping deal with climate change are all things where we need action. And every other year, the CPRE Norfolk Awards celebrate those who are doing just that.
We are CPRE Norfolk, the countryside charity (charity 210706), working for a countryside that’s rich in nature, accessible to everyone and which plays a crucial role in responding to the climate emergency.
The 2021 CPRE Norfolk Awards has a range of categories and we are looking for projects carried out by local groups, local organisations (such as parish councils), and those in the private and commercial sector, and those that involve young people, that celebrate and enhance the quality of country life in beautiful Norfolk.
The entry categories are:
(i) rural living (for projects that improve the sustainability of rural living such as reducing energy, carbon, water use etc. in rural communities).
(ii) countryside champions (for projects that enhance wildlife, landscapes or improve countryside access).
(iii) digging deep (for businesses, local authorities and parish councils that are putting something back to benefit the environment or landscape)
(iv) good lighting design (to recognise schemes which keep light pollution impacts to a minimum in the rural countryside) – this category is not competitive.
Size of projects doesn’t matter, especially where initiatives can be replicated throughout the county.
Entries can be made between February 1st and May 28th 2021 and there will be an awards evening in September (hopefully a live event, but if this is not possible, we will hold a virtual event).
Please contact email@example.com if you have any queries.
The CPRE Norfolk 2021 Awards are generously sponsored by Brunswick Investment Management.
