Nominations for CPRE Hertfordshire's 2018 Rural Living Awards are now being accepted. Deadline for nominations:  Wednesday 30 May.

 

The future of our green and pleasant land, both in terms of environment and community, is under constant threat which is why CPRE Hertfordshire's Rural Living Awards seek to recognise and reward work done by groups, individuals and businesses  to improve life and enhance the environment in Hertfordshire's villages and its countryside.

Last year we received over 20 nominations which is fantastic, however, we believe there is much more happening across Hertfordshire which should be acknowledged and celebrated.  

“Wonderful to see such passion, integrity and love for our precious Hertfordshire countryside represented at the CPRE Herts Rural Living Awards – there is much inspirational work going on” Richard Young, Editor Hertfordshire Life, supporter of the CPRE Herts Awards.

If you would like to put a project, an individual or a business forward for consideration by our experienced judges just download a nomination form (see below) and complete the information.  Don’t be shy, anyone can make a nomination. You can even nominate yourself.

The Awards are judged in two categories – Community and Environment. Judges look for innovative projects that unite rural communities, benefit the community and promote access to the countryside. There are also awards for Rural Living Champions: young people and adults who make outstanding contributions to rural life and a Rural Business in the Community Award: for a rural business which has made an outstanding contribution to rural community life.

Last year’s nominations included an eco house, a project to restore a fernery, a community choir, a community library, river restoration, a village festival, a book on butterflies and several individuals who achieve amazing things in and for their community.
