Creating the Greenest County Awards 2014

 

 

Now in their seventh year the Greenest County Awards 2014 were launched last night at Birchwood Primary School in Martlesham, winners of the 2013 Champion of Champions public vote award.

The Creating the Greenest County Awards is an annual event which highlights the excellent environmental achievements going on across Suffolk,  celebrating  the huge number of inspirational people, businesses, communities, schools and projects across the county.

The Awards 2014 sees the introduction of the Public Vote award, which this year will be Greenest Community Project. This award will celebrate a community or a group of local volunteers who are working together to improve their surrounding environment, raising environmental awareness and making a difference to others. The final shortlist will then be put to a public vote.

You can nominate yourselves, or nominate a group which has inspired you. Just make sure you enter!

Councillor Richard Smith, Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Planning and the Environment said “I am happy to be supporting the Creating the Greenest County Awards. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the inspirational work that is going on in Suffolk’s businesses, schools and communities and encourage others to follow in their green footsteps. I would also like to thank our sponsors who make the Awards possible.”
