English Nature scoops award at Gardeners' World Live 2005
Appeared on Space For Nature on June 21st 2005
English Nature was awarded the epithet of Best Contribution to Environmental and Conservation Issues at the BBC Gardeners' World Live 2005 show.
The show runs annually at the NEC in Birmingham and is gaining in prestige, this year attracting its first royal visitor - Prince Charles. The aim of the English Nature stand, titled Wanted: Space for Wildlife, was to show visitors that wildlife can be encouraged to thrive anywhere, not only in the countryside. Monty Don presented the award to English Nature for the second year running. Jan Lippiatt, English Nature's Events Manager, said "It's been great to meet so many people who want to encourage wildlife into their gardens. We are delighted to have won this award, which reinforces all of the positive comments we have received from visitors to our stand."
