Harworth Estates Nominated for Local ‘Green Guardians’ Award

Harworth Estates have finished runners-up in a recent awards ceremony in recognition of their work in the restoration of the former Rufford Colliery site in North Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Green Guardians Awards scheme has a well-established reputation and is designed to recognise, reward and encourage positive environmental action in all sections of the community. Harworth Estates was shortlisted in the Environmental Business Awards category in recognition of their work at Rufford to create and restore heathland to enhance the local environment, particularly for woodlark and nightjar.

Recognised by sponsor David Bellamy as having ‘worked hard to restore and conserve large areas of the local environment’, Harworth was narrowly beaten by the Nottingham Ecohome project to the award but are pleased by the recognition that the scheme has earned.

Bob Nicholson, Legacy Director at Harworth Estates, commented: “Harworth Estates is committed to a long-term restoration plan for Rufford and we were particularly pleased to be nominated for a Green Guardians award. Next year will see even greater progress made on the site.”

Further information on our work at Rufford will soon be made available on the Key Projects part of this website.
