The scheme, which was launched in 2009 to encourage more people to make an extra effort to improve the environment, is open to all Tonbridge and Malling residents and anyone can nominate a person or a group to become an Environmental Champion. The awards are part of the Borough Councils "Love Where You Live" and "Love Kent" Campaigns.
Over the last 11 years we have recognised groups and individuals for litter picking, supporting local food projects through farmers markets, flood wardens, school and uniform groups Love Where You Live projects, community wildlife gardeners, country park volunteers, volunteer health walk leaders and volunteer Street Monitors, as well as a special Love Where You Live Gold Award for Tonbridge Canoe Club and Stuart and Anne Olsson who run the Larkfield Voluntary Litter Code (VLC) Scheme.
The 2020 awards are fast approaching. We invite members of the public to nominate worthy champions using the nomination form 2020 alternatively contact the Borough Council's Environmental Projects Coordinator on 01732 876295 or e-mail email@example.com.
