Do you know someone or are you someone who deserves recognition for their voluntary efforts to improve their local patch for wildlife?

If so, enter them or yourself for a Community Biodiversity Award. The Awards are run by the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership (NBP) — a voice for Norfolk’s nature — which is hosted by Norfolk County Council. Nominations are welcome from enthusiastic community groups and individuals who are making a difference for wildlife in their local patch — such as town and parish councils, groups, individuals, schools and businesses.

Entries are open to anyone who is working in a voluntary capacity at a local level to improve their local environment for biodiversity and to widen knowledge of, and participation in, the natural world. This year, the five award categories are Parish and Town Councils, Inspiring Others, Best Group, Outstanding Land Manager, and ‘Heathlands.’

All the information for the awards can be found If you have any further questions please get in touch with Paul Holley paulholley@norwich.gov.uk, Anne Casey anne.casey@norfolk.gov.uk or Su Waldron su.waldron@norfolk.gov.uk.
