Dedicated environmentalists were recognised for their hard work at the prestigious Green Guardians Awards ceremony hosted by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust at the Council House in Nottingham on Wednesday November 11th 2009.

The annual Green Guardians Awards, the only dedicated environmental awards programme in the county, are backed by a range of well known figures from the world of broadcasting and the environment including Bill Oddie and John Craven, and the winning entries will be judged by world renowned botanist Prof. David Bellamy. The award scheme has a well-established reputation and is designed to recognise, reward and encourage positive environmental action in all sectors of the community. The awards this year have been made possible through the kind support of the Greater Nottingham Partnership.

Conservationist David Bellamy was among the judges and was delighted with the quality and impact of the shortlisted projects.

Speaking about the Awards, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Chief Executive John Everitt said: “The range and quality of the applications this year was tremendous. It is very exciting to learn that so much positive work is being done to protect Nottinghamshire’s environment. Sometimes being green can be presented as being boring or environmentalists can be portrayed as being killjoys, but it is clear to see from the applications we’ve had for this year’s Awards that there is lots of fun to be had whilst being green.”
