The finalists gathered at Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Lower Smite Farm, to see if they were amongst the winners of the awards that recognise, celebrate and promote local green projects, activities and lifestyles that are not only good for the environment but also benefit the community or save money. Nominations from across the district were received in four award categories.
