CPRE Gloucestershire’s Rural Excellence Awards – now in their twelfth year - recognise developments which are outstanding in their contribution to the environment or the local community, and which are exemplars of good practice.  The 2019 Awards presentations took place today when seven awards were made celebrating some of the very best of the county’s building developments and projects.
Since its awards scheme first began in 2007, CPRE Gloucestershire has celebrated and highlighted 67 innovative projects throughout the county.
