Previous award winner
“It is fantastic to get this award and reinforces our commitment to continuing to look for opportunities to support rural communities and the local economy in and around Northumberland National Park.” Derek Proudlock, Northumberland National Park.
The previous winner of the £2,000 bursary was Northumberland National Park’s outstanding project, Traditional Boundaries, Traditional Skills.
The project stood out because it skilfully combined conservation with job creation, restoring the fragile landscape and creating a legacy of employable traditional skills in the rural north east. The five year project was a tremendous success, with 80% of trainees now in employment. The Award bursary is being used to extend the project so that more young people can benefit through work placements.
