CPRE Hampshire Launches New Awards Scheme
As part of CPRE Hampshire's aim to involve more people within the community in its activities, the branch has included within its 2007 projects the establishment of a new environmental awards scheme, intended to cover a wide range of projects which improve the local environment. The scheme will be known as the 'CPRE Hampshire Countryside and Design Award' and will be run annually.
The CPRE Hampshire Countryside and Design Award consists of three categories:
It is hoped that the awards scheme will reward those working to enhance Hampshire's environment and draw attention to the necessity of good environmental practice. Everyone, including CPRE members, the public and professionals are encouraged to become involved by completing an application form and nominating a project they would deem worthy of the judging panel's attention. Entries for the 2008 awards must be in by 21st March 2008.
The criteria for the Schools category will be:
An example of a school eligible for this award is Warren Park in Portsmouth. Further information can be found at http://www.warrenpark.hants.sch.uk/.
The Voluntary and Community category considerations are as follows:
A good example of work which would be eligible for this award is that which has taken place at Fullers Vale Wildlife Pond. See http://www.johnowensmith.co.uk/pond/index.htm and http://www.johnowensmith.co.uk/pond/photos.htm.
The Public Sector and Business category is open to business and council-led projects which have made tangible progress towards tackling one or more of the core CPRE issues, including:
See www.cprehampshire.org.uk for further details regarding CPRE values. The winner would be the project that, in the eyes of the judging panel, has made the most significant contribution to the quality of life of the local community. The CPRE is very much in favour of the promotion of local foods, and Hampshire Fare is a prominent organisation representing local food producers.

Christopher Napier, chairman of CPRE Hampshire said:
"This awards scheme is a perfect opportunity for CPRE Hampshire to recognise the work of volunteers, schools, businesses and public sector bodies in Hampshire that are showing leadership in conserving and enhancing our environment and countryside; in advancing values which CPRE stands for, such as local foods, tranquillity, and night blight; or in improving opportunities for our children to learn about our landscape and rural issues. We look forward to receiving many good applications now and over coming years."
