Nominations are now being sought for the annual Community Biodiversity Awards, organised by the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership.

Organisers are looking for entries from individuals, businesses, local groups and parish and town councils who work to enhance the environment in their areas ahead of the 13th annual ceremony, which will take place in July.

Paul Holley, chairman of the awards’ organisers, said: “Over the years, we have celebrated some outstanding conservation projects and individuals who have made a real difference in their local communities.

“Working together on conservation projects is a great way to make a difference for wildlife alongside benefits for human health and wellbeing.

“This year we have broadened our award categories so that we can recognise important efforts to conserve biodiversity undertaken by parish and town councils, land managers, local businesses and schools.

“We are also looking to recognise work to boost wildlife across two ‘themed’ habitat categories: commons and greens and churchyards and cemeteries.”

Nominations should be submitted at www.norfolkbiodiversity.org/communityprojects/biodiversityawards. The closing date is May 13.
