Living Countryside Awards 2018

Presentation 3rd October 2018, Harpur Suite, Bedford.

Tiddenfoot awarded the Highest Accolade by CPRE

Tiddenfoot Waterside Park has won the coveted 'CPRE Mark' - the highest possible award in recognition of the work done to improve the Park.

The category won was in the 'Biodiversity and Landscape Improvements' category.

In addition to providing a wonderful place for people to relax, efforts are being made to engage with younger people following a successful experiment with the 'Tiddenfoot trail'.

The award was given for the volunteers work in planting new hedges, laying existing boundary hedges using traditional pleaching methods and reclaiming the Sands of Time footpath after 25 years of neglect. The award also recognised the building of the sand martins nest box and the bird hide.

This is a wonderful result, due entirely to the commitment of the Friends Group.

The next award scheme is projected to be in 2020.

The award was presented by the HM Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Helen Nellis.
