Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare receive their Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

14th October 2015 Posted in Council News

Yesterday at Easthampstead Park, representatives from Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare received their Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service from James Puxley, Lord-Lieutenant of Berkshire.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work in their communities. The awards were created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare was one of 187 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year.

Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare is an inspirational six acre multi-purpose garden for the community.  The project is a partnership between Bracknell Town Council, Bracknell Forest Homes, Warfield Parish Council and Syngenta. At the site in Warfield, members of the local community support each working on horticultural activities and have created a haven for wildlife to enjoy. Sharing skills and produce is at the heart of the project, with local groups and individuals growing fruit, vegetables, other plants, benefitting from the therapy of horticulture and enhancing bio-diversity.

David Putt, Jealott’s Hill Community Landshare Project Manager, said:  “On behalf of the organisations and volunteers involved with Jealott’s Hill, I am absolutely thrilled with this award, which recognises efforts to bring this project to fruition for the great benefit of local people.”
