Get in your entries for fourth Norwich eco awards

Time is running out for Norwich businesses, schools and community groups to show their green credentials.

The closing date for entries for the fourth eco awards, set up by the city council and supported by the Evening News, is this Friday January 27.

Among the applications so far is an entry from the NHS Trust Norfolk Community Health who have introduced a new recycling scheme at their office in Elliot House on Ber Street.

Grapes Hill Community Garden has also put forward an impressive entry.

The group has turned a piece of derelict land on Valentine Street off Dereham Road into a thriving garden.
