District council to celebrate all things green at awards evening
HUNTINGDONSHIRE Distrit Council are marking World Environment Day on Saturday.
The council, which covers Yaxley, Sawtry, Farcet and Huntingdon, will be holding its first ever Huntingdonshire Green Heart Community Awards.
Community groups, schools, businesses and individuals across the county have been returning their entry forms to let the council know about the environmental work that has been taking place in the district.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Saturday night in St Ives where they will receive a trophy and £250 for their next green project.
Councillor Jonathan Gray, executive councillor for environment, said: “World Environment Day is a day that stimulates awareness.
“It is going to be a great event and I would like to encourage residents to find out more about what they can do to help the district’s environment.”
