After a year which has challenged many to re-evaluate what is important in their lives and which has, for many underlined the value of people having access to natural greenspaces on their doorstep Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to announced the successful nominees in the charity’s 2020/21 Wildlife on Your Doorstep Awards supported by EDF.
For over a decade, the awards have been recognising and rewarding actions taken by individuals, groups and organisations to protect and promote wildlife in their local communities. Over the past year many people have continued to find the time and energy to put nature first despite the challenges we’ve all faced due to the pandemic and restrictions during successive lockdowns.
Speaking about the awards Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive Paul Wilkinson said:
“One of the positives to come out of the past year has been people’s increased appreciation of the natural world and wider recognition of the role nature plays in sustaining us and enhancing our wellbeing. We’ve been delighted with the response to the Wildlife on Your Doorstep Awards and it’s great to see that people across the county have been putting nature first in extremely challenging times.”
