CPRE Hertfordshire Awards back for 2022

Our ambition for the Awards is to recognise and celebrate inspirational people engaged in activities that enhance and protect the Hertfordshire countryside and its rural communities.

After pausing our awards in 2021 due to the pandemic, we are delighted that the CPRE Hertfordshire Awards are back. With a closing date of 31st May 2022, we would love to receive nominations for projects which

  • connect people with the countryside and their local green spaces
  • promote rural life and ensure that communities can thrive
  • improve or protect the environment

Nominees might be volunteer-based projects or events, community groups, individuals, or small businesses.

And we have an exciting new category, ‘Made in Herts’ which will recognise excellence in sustainable farming and local foods, products using local materials, or traditional craftspeople and artists, in particular working in rural areas or with rural themes.

We also hope to make an Award for an outstanding project or activity run by or on behalf of young people (up to the age of 21) in the categories above.

Find out all the details by visiting our website: CPRE Hertfordshire Awards – CPRE Hertfordshire (cpreherts.org.uk), be inspired by past Award recipients, and make a nomination today!
