2018 Finalists Announced! 

We are absolutely delighted to reveal the 19 lucky projects who have wowed our judges and been selected as Finalists for the 2018 Countryside Awards! 

The CPRE Hampshire Countryside Awards are designed to celebrate a beautiful and thriving countryside and all those who sustain it for everyone to enjoy. The spirit of this can be found in a diverse range of projects, buildings, businesses, services and social enterprises - from large to grass roots. The quality of entries this year has been outstanding, we have been inundated with fantastic contributions and our judges had a tough job selecting this year's Finalists.

The judges aren't the only ones with a vote as this year sees the opportunity for the public to have their say and choose their favourite contender in the Hampshire's Choice award.
