The annual CPRE Awards Scheme is now open and the countryside charity is inviting you to think about the people or groups who help improve life in your community and/or enhance the environment in Hertfordshire and nominate them for an award.
They want to recognise those who work so hard to protect, promote and enhance towns or villages and/or the surrounding countryside to make them better places to live, work, go to school or enjoy for today and tomorrow and to celebrate their efforts. For example; charities, informal groups, events, businesses and individuals of all ages.
‘It is great to see individuals and groups receiving recognition for their work and contribution to the community,’ said Cllr Jeff Jones.
There is a lot happening across Hertfordshire and they would love you to nominate, or to spread the word by telling others about the awards. They are also happy to receive self-nominations.
For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make a nomination just download a form from the website www.cpreherts.org.uk/awards and return it to them.
Closing date: 31 May 2020
Judges review the nominations during the summer and the Awards are presented at an evening event in October.
Previous nominations have included village halls, playgrounds, chalk streams, local nature reserves, health walks and woodland restoration, riverfly monitoring, a bird box trail, an eco-house and various ‘friends of’ groups, a community car scheme, community choirs, festivals, community orchards and a lambing weekend.
The charity also receives nominations for businesses and individuals of all ages, who make a difference in their community and/or the environment.
Someone or something in your community deserves to be recognised! If you’d like to encourage others to take part, you can download and share or display this poster.
