The closing date for entries to this year’s Norwich eco awards has been extended to 5pm on Wednesday 2 February, so take a few minutes over the weekend to get your entry in!
Now’s your chance to get recognition for the hard work you’ve undertaken to make Norwich a cleaner, safer, more eco-friendly place to live in, work in and visit.
The awards are FREE to enter, and everyone who enters gets invited to a special awards ceremony at City Hall where certificates and trophies are presented by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, councillor Tom Dylan.
So if you’ve introduced a wildlife area to your school to encourage biodiversity, improved the way your workplace operates to lower the amount of waste you produce, or got the community involved in a litter pick, then we want to hear from you.
You’ve got the chance to let everyone know about the projects you have worked hard on to improve the area you live or work in, celebrating them and inspiring others to do the same.
Councillor Victoria MacDonald, cabinet member for environment at Norwich City Council, said: "We want to hear from any school, community group or business - no matter how big or small - about what they've been doing, and reward them for the part they play in making Norwich a more eco city.
"It's a great opportunity for us to be able to say thanks to people for their hard work, and for them to really be appreciated, so I'd encourage anyone who's been involved in environmental projects over the last year to get in touch."
All entrants will be invited to the awards ceremony, presented by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, councillor Tom Dylan, in February 2011.
