The Love Where You Live ‘Environmental Champions Award’ is a scheme set up to recognise and thank those people who have gone the extra mile to improve their local environment.  Nominations were focused on individuals and groups who are voluntarily going out of their way to improve their surroundings.  This may include things like litter picking, conservation activities or any other voluntary activity which improves the environment in their local area.

The Parish Council were delighted to nominate both Adrian Harrison and Mike Easterbrook, members of the Parish Council's Quarry Management Group.  They received their Environmental Champions Awards from the Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling, Cllr Howard Rogers and Mr Vic Window from Veolia Environmental Services at a ceremony at Tonbridge Castle in December 2013.  They were nominated for their dedication to the ongoing management of the Quarry and for their assistance in acquiring the Quarry Local Nature Reserve status.
