Closing date for the Tidy Wales Awards is 16 October 2017
The Tidy Wales Awards are sponsored by Viridor
Keep Wales Tidy is calling on volunteer groups, schools, organisations and businesses across Wales to put their names forward for the Tidy Wales Awards.
Could this be the year you are a category winner and get your hands on a cash prize?
The Tidy Wales Awards recognises volunteer groups or individuals throughout Wales who work tirelessly to improve their local environment. These unsung green heroes have inspirational stories to tell of how their volunteering has improved not only their local environment through reducing litter and protecting wildlife habitats, but have also created links in communities, bringing people together and in some instances reducing the impact of poverty.
Do you know a group or school that deserve recognition for their hours of volunteering and environmental work? Keep Wales Tidy want to hear from you! For your chance to win, complete the simple form on the Keep Wales Tidy website www.keepwalestidy.cymru. The deadline for applications is midday on 16 October 2017.
The three shortlisted entries for each category will be invited to attend a prestigious award ceremony to be held in Cardiff in November 2017. The awards are organised by Keep Wales Tidy, and hosted by S4C presenter Sian Thomas.
Lesley Jones, Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy said:
“For more than 25 years, the Tidy Wales Awards has celebrated inspirational people of all ages taking part in a wide range of green initiatives, all with the common goal of making a difference in their communities. We’re urging volunteers, schools, businesses and organisations to come forward and apply – no project is too small. We look forward to hearing all the amazing stories.”
