Last chance to enter Norwich’s eco awards
Green-thinking groups, schools, businesses and individuals have just one day left to get their entries in for this year's Norwich Eco Awards.
The closing date for the annual awards, organised by Norwich City Council in partnership with the Evening News, is tomorrow.
The awards help recognise all the good work that is going on in the city to help the environment.
There are three categories, businesses, schools and community groups, and all entries will also be put forward for the Eco Hero award. Victoria MacDonald, cabinet member for environment at City Hall, said: 'These awards are the perfect opportunity for people to tell us all about the good things they've been doing to make Norwich a more eco city.
'We want as many schools, community groups and businesses as possible to come forward and tell us about what they've been doing, and reward them for their contribution to sustainability within the city.

'It's essential for everyone in Norwich to get involved with eco issues, not only will positive actions help to improve the area they live in, but also for future generations who will live there.'
All entrants will be invited to the awards ceremony, presented by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Tom Dylan, next month.
