The Trust is delighted to have received the runner-up prize of £1000 in the Insurance Corporation Conservation awards for creating native wild flower meadows around the Island to support Jersey wildlife.
The prize was awarded for the wild flower meadow project at The Elms which looked absolutely fantastic on the day of judging with ox-eye daisies aplenty. The money will go towards creating more wild flower meadows on National Trust sites which is also a great boost for the Pollinator Project.
Many congratulations to Jon Rault, the Trust Conservation Officer and the Lands Team for securing the prize.
Michelle Arundale, HR & PR Executive for Insurance Corporation and Chairman of the Judging panel said that they were overwhelmed with the entries they received this year:
“This year we had a difficult task to shortlist entries for judging for the first time in the history of the competition. We had such a fabulous response this year and we were delighted to see such a variety of projects entering. The judging day is always a real pleasure and provides a great insight into finding out all about the fantastic local conservation projects going on around our community and the Bailiwick. It is also a chance to meet the inspirational people behind the projects doing their utmost to en-hance our natural environment in so many different ways. Congratulations to all the entrants and especially our winners.”
