Green cycling up for award - More schools entries sought

The CPRE Hampshire Countryside Awards scheme was launched in 2007 to recognise significant achievements across the county which support our goal of "a beautiful, diverse and living countryside that everyone can value and enjoy".

It is one of the best established Awards schemes in the county and over 20 projects have been recognised by an award to date.

For 2011 CPRE Hampshire is proud to have the Awards sponsored by Steve's Leaves. Steve's Leaves are a bunch of pioneering farmers who grow tasty, nutritious baby leaves using nature friendly farming and building special habitats to encourage wildlife.

The programme is being run in conjunction with Hampshire Fare & Hampshire Ambassadors.

Who Can Apply?

The scheme welcomes applications from all sections of the community and from projects of all types, big and small. For 2011 the focus will be on three categories in which environmentally outstanding projects can be nominated. The three categories are:

  • Rural Enterprise (Public Sector or Commercial) with a particular emphasis on "Field to Table" - food related businesses
  • Voluntary / Community
  • Schools

We ask that projects have been completed within the past three years. Full guidance is covered in the 6-page guidance booklet (PDF). To apply you will need to complete an application form - download either the PDF version or the Word version.

Further Information

All applications must be received by 15 July 2011.

After the closing date the judges will convene a scrutiny panel to assess entries. They will select three finalists in each category and site visits will be conducted between August and mid September.

A final list of winners will then determined. All applicants will be notified of the judges' decision and those projects selected for site visits, plus any others the judges consider worthy of special awards, will be invited to an Awards Ceremony on 28th September 2011. This will take place at a characteristic venue to be decided but probably in the Winchester area.
