Beer on East Devon's World Heritage Coast

Beer has won a Gold Award in the category "Champion of Champions"


9 "In Your Neighbourhood Awards" of Britain in Bloom South West


Dear Members et al,
We’re delighted to tell you that Beer Village Heritage was the runner-up, alongside the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, for the Acland Award 2017.   The winner was the Woodbury Community Orchard, and Shute Community Primary School was fourth.
The 15 entries from across the area of the AONB varied from woodland management to a community art project to create a huge mural, to Himalyan balsam clearance and river bank protection schemes and included the Branscombe Project, Blackberry Honey Farm, Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub, Seaton Marshes, some individual volunteering initiatives and several groups working with the Greater Horseshoe Bat project.
Harry Barton, CEO of Devon Wildlife Trust, presented Nick and Henry with a plaque and a framed certificate, along with a voucher for Trill Farm.   You’ll be able to see the plaque etc in the centre in due course.
Needless to say, we’re feeling very pleased for the group as this is a tribute to our general community engagement, beach cleans and support for conservation initiatives like the Greater Horeshoe Bat project.
