Lincolnshire Environmental Awards 2018
Together with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust the club runs the Lincolnshire Environmental Awards
The only dedicated environmental awards in Lincolnshire for communities, businesses, farmers, land managers and young environmentalists.
The Lincolnshire Environmental Awards for environmental excellence have been given every year since 1993. They are designed to recognise and celebrate the inspiring activities that are helping to improve the environment and encourage sustainability.
The Awards 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 and groups enter the awards. Past winners have included village community groups that have created wildlife areas; schools that have grown their own vegetables, built recycled bottle greenhouses and bug palaces; farmers that have restored and planted hedges, and created wetlands.
