Lincolnshire Environment Awards 2019

Such an exciting night at the Lincolnshire Environment Awards

Mercer Wood Community Group won the Orsted Community Award and the Overall Award at the event which was held at Lincoln’s Bentley Hotel on Thursday 6 June. The inspiring and uplifting evening demonstrated how important our natural heritage is and how we can all play a part in its protection and recovery.

Thank you everyone for all the vision and hard work – so delighted it has received recognition!


“We were just overwhelmed at winning both awards, it is a wonderful boost for us. It was so reassuring to realise that there is already a wider understanding of the need to nurture urban green space and its wildlife, both for biodiversity and the climate emergency, as well as human health and wellbeing.”
