The APRG & Felbeck Trust team, join with other award winners
At last night's Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership Community Biodiversity Awards evening in Norwich, the Aylmerton Pond Restoration Group, APRG, scooped the award for Watery wildlife and habitats.
The citation reads: this community group has shown enormous enthusiasm, passion and commitment to improve their local pond, a striking focal point in the village. Their motivation centres around a desire to look after the wildlife and landscape assets here but also maximise enjoyment for residents and visitors alike... The group has also led to the creation of a new conservation charity for Norfolk - Felbeck Trust - which will undertake similar projects but on a broader scale. Worthy winners indeed!
APRG will, following a recent general meeting, shortly be wound-up but their ethos and valuable habitat restoration work will continue under the auspices of Felbeck Trust.
Congratulations and well-done to all those involved.
