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.
Christopher Napier, Chairman of CPRE Hampshire said:
"This awards scheme is a perfect opportunity for us to recognise the hard work of volunteers, schools, businesses and public sector bodies in Hampshire that are showing leadership in conserving and enhancing our environment and countryside; also in advancing values which CPRE stands for, such as local foods and tranquillity; 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 the coming years."
The Hampshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England is a charity that strives to promote the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of this county's countryside.
