This year CPRE Northamptonshire will be running the Community Awards, which were launched in 2018. These awards aim to celebrate volunteer-led community projects that enhance the quality of life and environment for those living in Northamptonshire's villages, towns and countryside.
Applications can be made by any community group working within Northamptonshire or on behalf of a community group (the award is not a single person award).
Applications should demonstrate one or more of the following have been achieved:
an enhancement to the countryside
an enhancement to the environment of villages or towns
an enhancement to the urban areas
an enhancement to the quality of life for those living in, working in or visiting Northamptonshire
all projects must have been completed in the past 5 years
all projects should generally be volunteer-based or managed by volunteer trustees
The winners in 2018 included a community garden and the restoration of an urban park with a community orchard and community shop.
Celebrate your community's achievements by nominating them. The closing date is 30 September 2020.
