Prince of Wales Award

The prestigious Prince of Wales Award winner will receive £1,000 and a framed certificate.

The Award is open to community organisations, for instance community groups, schools etc which have, through their own initiative, brought about improvements to the lives of the rural population in a sustainable manner.

The Award is intended to embrace a wide range of schemes where there has been a genuine attempt to move forward in a resourceful and inventive way to the benefit of a rural community.  Examples of such projects would be:

  1. The communal involvement in a local asset to sustain, enhance and preserve an urban or rural community with particular regard to youth or school projects.
  2. The benefit of a Forest School encouraging children to derive pleasure and learning from outdoor activities.

The Judges will look at all applications within the wide criteria providing there is a sustainable element and visit the short-listed projects to assess which has made the most outstanding contribution to improving the lives of their community.
