CPRE Sussex Countryside Awards 2017

Written by CPRE Sussex

We are delighted to have received such an impressive and wide variety of Countryside Awards applications for 2017, ranging from the ‘Arlington Bluebell Walk & Farm Trail’ and ‘The Egrets Way Ouse Valley Cycle Network’ to the ‘Littlehampton Rain Garden’ and ‘Schools Without Walls’.  Thank you to all who have taken the time to enter – our initial short-listing was extremely difficult!  

Inspiring, ingenious and innovative projects have been celebrated at the Sussex Countryside Awards 2017. Organised by the Sussex branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, the awards were held at Petworth House on Wednesday, October 11.
They saw countryside heroes from across the county celebrated with everything from chocolatiers and brewers to farmers and developers winning on the night.
