Biodiversity and Landscape: Long Melford Biodiversity Group
The group examines ways in which the village could be made more environmentally friendly, and how more land, both public and private, could be dedicated to nature. They also actively seek deliverable opportunities to mitigate and adapt to climate change, including moving to a low carbon economy.
What the judges said: “They have impressed with the reach and impact that they have achieved, considering how recently the group formed. They have created a variety of habitats and undertake much maintenance work, involving a wide range of members of the community. We are excited to see the impact they will have on their community, their landscape and local wildlife moving forwards.”
