Nottinghamshire Environment Awards Open

John Charles-Jones Nottinghamshire_58436Nottinghamshire FWAG is pleased to announce that the Nottinghamshire Farm Environment Award is open for nominations again this year. The award run with the support of the NFU, continues to be as successful as ever in seeking out excellent farm conservation practices from around the county.

Buntings (Agri) Ltd are kindly providing the prize money this year and Adam Bunting says “We are very pleased to be asked to support these awards which provide an excellent opportunity for farmers to show how much excellent work they are doing to help wildlife on their farms.

A first prize of £100 with a specially-commissioned commemorative award will be presented to the winner. The prize will be awarded across all entries, so farms and holdings of all types and sizes are eligible to apply, provided the business is run on a commercial basis in Nottinghamshire.

Andy Guy, NFU Notts County Adviser adds: “We are sure the winning formula of farms being nominated for their achievements, followed by on site judging will continue to attract many farmers and reward quality conservation on commercial farms in the county. I know there is so much being done on farms and the awards are a valuable part of demonstrating this.”

Entries for the award will close on Monday 17 June, with on-farm judging taking place in early July. Nomination forms can be obtained from Lesley Sharpe, Notts FWAG on 07707 220121, your local NFU office or the NFU’s regional office (01572 824250).
