Phil Castiaux and Susan Keith of Blyth Valley BC were this week presented with the KPMG Peat Marwick/LGC Green Initiative Award by Environment and Countryside Minister Tim Yeo. The award for innovation and best practice in environmental awareness was announced by KPMG partner David Todd.

Blyth Valley stood above the other entries because of its strong educational successes. Its project, the Cramlington Organisation for Nature and the Environment, encourages and aids the development and management of wildlife habitats in which it has involved 12 schools in the locality.

CONE is a partnership between councils, businesses, wildlife groups and the local community. Mr Yeo congratulated all the entries for their high quality. He said the Green Initiative demonstrated local government's willingness and ability to work together with all sectors of the community to secure a better local environment.

The wide range of entries suggested many councils took their responsibility for environmental stewardship very seriously, he said. Blyth Valley beat more than 70 other entries in the competition.
