The Farm/Rural enterprise award is sponsored by Lincoln Toyota: The three finalists are F G Battle and Sons – the family farm near Branston has always combined commercial and profitable arable farming with the retention and enhancement of wildlife habitats and landscape features. Hedgerows, ponds and traditional buildings have been restored; and limestone grasslands, wetlands and beetle banks created. Barn owl boxes have been successful and there are good numbers of hares and many other species. Marriage’s Specialist Foods – the Marriages have run their milling flour and animal feed business since 1824. Their latest venture is Honeyfields wild bird food range; Conservation Grade food for garden birds that guarantees the ingredients have been grown on a farm that has been proven to have reversed the decline in some of our most endangered species. Rudies Roots Nurseries – offer a ‘hire a Christmas tree’ service for the festive season. Hired for the Christmas period, the potted living trees are returned to the nursery. The same trees can be utilised for 10 years or more before eventually getting to large for pot production – they are then planted and grown in the nursery. The trees are kept weed free by grazing rare breed sheep and rheas.
The Community award is sponsored by Centrica: The three finalists are Bishops Palace Heritage Site – this heritage site in Nettleham had lain derelict for many years until the parish council identified it as being one that should be converted into an amenity for all to enjoy. Working with other local groups and the community, the site now includes interpretive panels and a discovery trail, a wildflower meadow, woodland, orchard and dry stone wall reconstructed by volunteers. Grantham River Care – a group of volunteers of all ages and social backgrounds have adopted a two mile stretch of the River Witham in Grantham. They turn out regardless of the weather to clear litter from the river and recycle as much as possible. They have also carried out conservation work, bat watches and nature studies. The Coastal Eco Centre – this 14 acre former landfill site in Skegness has been specifically developed to valuable resource for the local community. The mosaic of woodlands, ponds and meadows that encourage wildlife to flourish are cleverly mixed with a wide range of training facilities, classrooms and outdoor study areas.
