We are finalists!

Shortlisted for CPRE Countryside Award

We are pleased to announce that Patrick’s Patch has been shortlisted for the Campaign to Protect England’s (CPRE) Countryside Award for young people.

The CPRE approached Rachel, our Head Gardener to see if we would like to enter due to all the hard work the children from local schools have put into the garden.

This week we were told we were finalists and invited to Winchester.

The Countryside Awards scheme is sponsored by The Southern Co-operative (lead and Community and Voluntary category sponsor), Steve’s Leaves (Young People), Hildon (Rural Enterprise) and Hastoe (Sustainable Buildings).

Run by the county branch of the CPRE, this year’s awards, now in its 11th term, has seen a record entries.

They recognise and celebrate those working in Hampshire countryside for everyone to value and enjoy.

The winners will be announced by the Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire at a ceremony on September 19 at Littleton Millennium Memorial Hall near Winchester.
