CPRE Hampshire’s Countryside Awards

CPRE Hampshire’s annual Countryside Awards are once again open for entries and they are looking to award community and voluntary groups that support CPRE Hampshire’s mission in protecting the countryside. Are you or do you know of such a project or group?

The Countryside Awards are designed to celebrate our beautiful, diverse and thriving countryside and all those who sustain it so that that everyone can value and enjoy it.

The spirit of this can be found in a diverse range of projects, buildings, businesses, services and social enterprises – from large to grass roots level. Entries are welcome from all sections of the Hampshire community; projects both big and small which support CPRE Hampshire’s mission of ‘standing up for the countryside’. These could involve volunteers, the community, young people and business representatives.

There are four individual award categories:

  • Community and Voluntary
  • Young People
  • Rural Enterprise
  • Making Places

Hampshire’s Choice

The awards are designed to celebrate our beautiful, diverse and thriving countryside and recognise those who are working to sustain it.  With ‘Hampshire’s Choice’, the public will be asked to vote, from all the finalists, who they think should win a cash sum of £500, giving potential applicants even more incentive to get their award submissions in.


For details and to enter, please read the Information Pack document available here.

You can then complete the entry form (form).

The Awards will open again in 2020.

Please note: Basingstoke Voluntary Action work closely with the local community to raise awareness of grants and also assist with advice and guidance on applications etc. If you apply for this or any other grant, please let us know via email to enable us to understand what is being applied for. Also, if you are in fact successful in receipt of any grant please let us know to enable reporting of such funding locally.
