Sanctuary Environmental Project Award Winner

Thursday, November 23rd 2017

Each year the launch of Sanctuary Magazine (The Ministry of Defence Sustainability Magazine) coincides with the Award Ceremony, which is held at Main Building in London. The prestigious Sanctuary Awards recognise and encourage group and individual efforts that benefit sustainable development, energy saving measures, wildlife, archeology, environmental improvement or community awareness of conservation on or within land that the MoD owns or uses in the UK and overseas. This year, Foxglove Covert won the Environmental Project Award for 25 years of Foxglove Covert. As you will know from yesterday's blog, several representatives from the reserve travelled to the award ceremony to collect the trophy and certificate.There was just enough time before the launch for a quick photo opportunity outside Main Building. 

Sanctuary Award

It was an enjoyable and interesting day. The MOD staff and award hosts were extremely welcoming.

Sanctuary

After a short presentation, the Foxglove team were called onto the stage to receive a beautiful wooden trophy and framed certificate. These will be on view in the Field Centre from today. The new copy of Sanctuary Magazine is available now either via this link for the digital version or in paper copy from the Field Centre and has a fantastic 3 page article all about the reserve (pages 80-82).

Photo Shoot

Well done to all involved over the last 25 years, we have a great deal to be proud of. Here's to the next 25 years!
