Norwich & Norfolk Eco Awards at the fabulous St Andrew’s Hall was held last week – well done to all the fabulous Eco Winners!
“What does a taxi company in Norwich, a school in Ellingham and an allotment enthusiast in Reepham have in common?
They were all recognised for their commitment to sustainability at the prestigious Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards 2018-19, held at the historic St Andrews Hall.
They were in good company – with other winners a volunteer group working in Tuckswood, a school in Reepham and a Norwich community interest company – at the evening hosted by biologist and conservationist Professor Ben Garrod. Speakers included Richard Powell, who was awarded an OBE in 2005 in recognition for his work in environment and sustainability.
Professor Garrod said: “I was thrilled to have the honour of hosting this event, which is a real celebration of the effort people are making to do their bit for the planet. It’s particularly inspiring to see the younger participants, who are not just tomorrow’s conservationists but already proving that you’re never too young to make a difference.”
Each of the winners received a handmade sustainable wood trophy and Ellingham VC Primary was presented with three tablets by sponsor Updata and Reepham High School scooped £500.”
