Sarah Jackson, Communications Portfolio Holder reviewed this years nominations for the Bowland Award 2013.
The Bowland Award 2013
The Bowland Award is presented annually for the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
To link with the Landscapes for Life Conference 2013 theme of water, “the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty” which promotes the landscape scale conservation or celebration of the water environment.
Nominations are invited through the media and direct through member organisations. This year two nominations came from non NAAONB members demonstrating recognition for this Award outside the NAAONB.
This year there was an excellent geographical spread from the Solway Coast, the Wye Valley and across to the Suffolk Coast. This Award provides the platform to highlight the range of activity taking place across the country and the variety of landscapes we work in.
