BUSINESSES and organisations in Hampshire are being invited to enter the 2013 CPRE Hampshire Countryside Awards.

They are being run jointly by The Campaign to Protect Rural England (Hampshire) and nature-friendly farmers, Steve’s Leaves.

The awards have three categories, including Youth, Rural Enterprise and Community/Voluntary.

The Portsmouth-based Southern Co-operative is sponsoring the community and voluntary category.

Entries from businesses and organisations to the Rural Enterprise category can be to do with team-building projects, sustainable buildings, low-carbon initiatives, sustainable business models, local food and drink; in fact anything that helps the county’s rural sustainability, nature and the land.

Entry deadline is July 19. See, for details.
