"The Lincolnshire Environment Awards are a great way to share good ideas, get recognition for hard work, and celebrate environmental action" commented Chairman of the Awards Committee, Roger Pavey.
"They are a showcase: giving community groups, schools, businesses and farmers an opportunity to demonstrate that they are playing their part in the sustainable development of the county. A very diverse range of people enter the awards, previous winners include Lisle Marsden C of E Primary School; Doddington Hall and Gardens; Grantham Angling Association; Nettleham Woodland Trust; The EPIC Centre and Operation Barn Owl - a collaboration between the Association of Drainage Boards, the Wildlife Conservation Partnership and volunteer barn owl advisors."
