After pausing in 2021 due to the pandemic, the CPRE Hertfordshire Awards are back. The ambition of the Awards is to recognise and celebrate inspirational people engaged in activities that enhance and protect the Hertfordshire countryside and its rural communities.
With a closing date of 31 May 2022, they would love to receive nominations for projects which:
- connect people with the countryside and their local green spaces
- promote rural life and ensure that communities can thrive
- improve or protect the environment
Nominees might be volunteer-based projects or events, community groups, individuals, or small businesses.
And there is an exciting new category, ‘Made in Herts’ which will recognise excellence in sustainable farming and local foods, products using local materials, or traditional craftspeople and artists, in particular working in rural areas or with rural themes.
They also hope to make an Award for an outstanding project or activity run by or on behalf of young people (up to the age of 21) in the categories above.
After receiving a CPRE Hertfordshire Award in 2019, a spokesperson for Wigginton Village Shop and Café said: ‘We had a fantastic evening at County Hall with CPRE Hertfordshire celebrating some amazing people, organisations and businesses that are all adding so much to the communities they support and the countryside.’
