2015 Insurance Corporation Conservation Awards Judging

Our 2015 Insurance Corporation Conservation Awards are fast approaching, and we recently ventured out to meet all of the Guernsey entrants as a part of our judging process.

We’ve had another year of exciting entries to our 2015 Insurance Corporation Conservation Awards, making it once again a challenging judging process! We were joined again by Conservationists Angela Salmon and Vanessa Adams who brought their enthusiasm, experience and knowledge to the day.

Entrants were:

  • Nigel Clarke – who introduced his project on SAFE Gardening.
  • Dennis Le Moignan – representing the eco flower basket watering system in St Peter Port Town Centre.
  • Chris Le Tisser – who showed us through the many initiatives at Les Vardes Quarry by Ronez Ltd.
  • Marguerite Talmage – from Edible Guernsey, who took us through the objectives to re-imagine the food landscape in Guernsey.
  • Richard Strappini – who discussed his idea to create an improved pathway to Saints Bay coastline.
  • 8 year old Enzo Crowson – who built a ‘bug hotel’ for insects and bugs to breed.
  • Harvey Adams – who has begun tree planting around the KGV playing fields.

Winners will be announced on the 10th June for the following awards:

  • Best Conservation Project
  • Best Conservation Project Runner Up
  • Manpower Awards

You’ll also be able to watch through videos of each entry and make your vote for the ‘Peter Walpole People Choice’ awards – details coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
