The search is on to find the Isle’s most environmentally friendly businesses, communities, farms and schools.

Entries are sought for the county’s prestigious Lincolnshire Environmental Awards 2016.

Past winners have included community groups that have created wildlife areas; schools that have built recycled bottle greenhouses and bug palaces; farmers that have restored and planted hedges; and businesses that run offices sustainably from recycling paper to collecting rainwater to wash fleet cars.

Chairman of the Awards Committee, Roger Pavey said: “The Awards are a great way to showcase achievements, boost morale, reward individuals and teams for their hard work, and inspire and encourage others to take action.”

A winner of the Lincolnshire Young Environmentalist Award (for members of schools and youth groups aged under 13) will receive a prize of £250, runner-up £150. To enter, write 200 to 300 words about your project and submit it online at
