Smiles @ The Norwich & Norfolk Eco Awards

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.”

Cambridge Design and Construction Awards

Held in the wonderful grounds of St Catherine College in Cambridge the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards took place last week, showcasing truly awe-inspiring design and building projects throughout Cambridgeshire.

Watching the presentations is fascinating. It certainly offers food for thought and I often come away with ideas for building projects, albeit on a significantly different financial footing.

And the winner is…..

And the winner is… as many of you will have seen on social media, I’m really proud to announce that the photograph I shot at Eden School during my first visit to this wonderful rural location has won the 2015 Travel Media Awards – Photography category.

“The winners of the inaugural Travel Media Awards were announced on 10 November 2015 at a glamorous awards ceremony at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London.

The event was attended by the UK’s top travel media, with 20 publications, broadcasters, journalists and photographers collecting a prestigious award. The announcement follows extensive deliberation by panels of industry and media judges”

Thanks to everyone who has been on the journey with me thus far, with special thanks to the children at Eden, without this chance meeting and their shear enthusiasm I wouldn’t be a winner!
