31 people came together at the Trust’s headquarters, Lower Smite Farm, to collect their awards on Thursday 30th January. From community gardeners to social media influencers, each had received a nomination for doing great things for wildlife in their local areas.
Sadie Carr Simons, organiser of the event, explained “It was an absolute delight to meet so many people who are doing important things for wildlife where they live.
“These are the people who really are making a difference for wildlife – from the nine year old who inspires classmates and other young people or the farmer who allows the local school to visit his wildflower meadows to champions of green initiatives in their area or groups of people determined to help wildlife in their community.
“This is the third awards ceremony that we’ve held and, with the backdrop of significant declines in our wildlife, it’s so heartening to see that so many people care enough to take positive action to help.”
