Countryside Awards open for entries until 17th June - CPRE Hampshire

The 10th annual Countryside Awards organised by the Hampshire branch of CPRE, the Campaign to Protect Rural England welcome entries from the local community by 17th June.

Volunteers, young people, community groups, businesses and organisations from across Hampshire are all encouraged to enter the awards and get the recognition they deserve for their contribution to the county.

CPRE Hampshire Chairman, Dee Haas said: "We run these awards because we want to celebrate a beautiful, diverse and living countryside that everyone can value and enjoy. By highlighting good practice, we hope to inspire people of all ages to try something similar in their communities and also to encourage debate about the balance between protecting the countryside and encouraging a thriving rural economy.”



This year’s awards are sponsored by The Southern Co-operative (lead sponsor and sponsor of Community and Voluntary award), Steve’s Leaves (Young People award), Dutton Gregory Solicitors (Rural Enterprise award), and Radian (Sustainable Buildings award).
