Green’s Windmill: the Awards Keep Coming
Following on from the Trust gaining the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) earlier this year, we are delighted to have received three more awards.
The first is the Marsh Trust ‘Volunteers for Museum Learning’ Award. As the East Midlands Regional Winner we received a certificate and £500. The awards are given for an outstanding contribution to engaging museum audiences and celebrate the achievements and contribution of volunteers all over the United Kingdom, recognising their dedication, innovation and excellence in engaging with the public.
We have also been given a 2017 East Midlands Heritage Award, winning in the ‘Heart of the Community’ category that recognises heritage projects that have had a positive impact on people and/or communities. Staff and volunteers attended a ceremony at Nottingham Trent University where they were presented with the award.
Our Community Garden has again been given a level 5 Outstanding certificate in the RHS / East Midlands in Bloom, It’s Your Neighbourhood Awards. It’s Green Flag status as an excellent community space has also been renewed for another year.
