The Acland Award is presented annually by the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership in recognition of examples of excellence and exemplar activity taking place within the AONB.
Each year the partnership focuses on a new area of activity to highlight the range and diversity of projects taking place across the AONB.
This year the focus is on Health and Wellbeing projects that seek to enhance people’s physical and/or mental health through closer connection with the environment of the East Devon AONB. The OVA nominated the Walks Team as deserving of celebration and public recognition and we are delighted to have been “Highly Commended” and receive their second place award at the East Devon AONB Annual Meeting on 20th September.
The Acland Award went to Axe Vale & District Conservation Society.
