Call goes out for people to enter annual prizegiving

Entries are being encouraged for an annual awards ceremony which celebrates the work of schools, community groups and volunteers who work to preserve and enhance the environment.

Entries are invited for the categories of best children’s project; Best young people’s project; Best urban project; Best coast or countryside project; Best new project; and for an Individual award.

The closing date for entries is Friday, July 31, and winners will be presented with awards by the Duchess of Northumberland at an event at The Alnwick Garden on September 17.

The event will be hosted by Carol Malia and the main sponsor of the awards is the Banks Group.
