Suffolk ACRE Awards

Earlier this year, Elmsett Parish Council proposed that EGGS should be considered for a Community Achievement Award from Suffolk ACRE.

At the beginning of September we were told that our new community woodland was one of four schemes that were being considered for an award. We were pleased meet Andrew Budden, from Suffolk ACRE, to tell him all about our scheme and show him round Buckle's Wood.

Members of the Steering Group were invited to their seventieth AGM and award ceremony on Thursday 27th September. We were delighted to receive a certificate for joint 2nd/3rd place, which was presented to us by Lord Tollemache and Lady Cranbrook.

The EGGS project has been "commended for outstanding community achievement".

Well done everyone; helpers, organisers and supporters, especially The Green Light Trust and James Buckle.
