Broads projects contributing to improving the national park could receive a £2,000 boost in recognition of their work thanks to the Campaign for National Parks’ Park Protector Award.

The award, sponsored by Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust, celebrates the work being done to protect and improve national parks across England and Wales with the winner receiving a £2,000 bursary and a runner up receiving £500 courtesy of Breedon Group.

Nominations are being invited until Tuesday, July 31. Nominated projects must be seeking to conserve or enhance the biodiversity or a heritage site, improve access to the park, or protect an area in a national park.

Fiona Howie, chief executive of Campaign for National Parks, said: “The Park Protector Award is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate amazing projects happening across the English and Welsh National Parks.”
