Group in running for top award

Have your say

A COMMUNITY conservation charity has been short listed for a national Biffaward.

The Little Ouse Headwaters Project (LOHP), which works in the Little Ouse valley on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, will go head on with five other finalists from across the country for the chance to win £2,000.

The LOHP has been short listed for the Natural Environment category at the 2011 Biffaward Awards, celebrating people that transform their communities through Biffaward funded projects.

The LOHP, which was selected as a finalist from 80 applicants, aims to restore, conserve, and promote wildlife and the landscape in the area.

The group is run by volunteers and looks after 11 sites along the Little Ouse river.

It was nominated for the award after carrying out work on two sites in Thelnetham using £45,000 funding from Biffaward.

Winners will be announced at the Biffaward Awards ceremony in Covent Garden, London, in November.
