LOVE Northumberland - I do!

Entries are now open for the 2018 LOVE Northumberland Awards. Northumberland County Council’s scheme celebrates all that is great about community environmental work in the county. There is a variety of categories you can enter: best children’s project, best young people’s project, best urban project, best coast or countryside project, best new project, best school recycling project and outstanding individual. Cllr Glen Sanderson said: “We want to encourage people to get involved and make a difference in their area, and to celebrate all the fantastic voluntary effort that goes on up and down Northumberland each year, which supports the council’s aims to keep Northumberland clean and green”. Winners will be presented their awards by The Duchess of Northumberland at an event at The Alnwick Garden in July, and I would encourage you to get your entries in now.

The gardens will be open from 2pm-5pm on Sunday 27thMay- entry is £4 for adults and free for children, and refreshments will be on offer.
