David Barker, Emma Hibbert, Chris Packham, Ben Orchard and Mark Murphy - Suffolk, Creating the Greenest County Awards 2015Adnams is very proud to once again sponsor the Suffolk - Creating the Greenest County Awards. The awards celebrate the inspirational work undertaken by committed groups and individuals to help make Suffolk a better place to live, for both people and wildlife. Hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk‘s Mark Murphy, the award ceremony took place in the Hoffmann Building at Snape Maltings. The opening address was given by Naturalist and BBC Broadcaster Chris Packham, who will be back with us in Suffolk in May to present the BBC's Springwatch from RSPB Minsmere. In recognising the passion and effort made in Suffolk to create thriving businesses and projects, it's brilliant to be able to acknowledge the wide audience that these endeavours reach. Each project is a long-term investment into the future to ensure Suffolk can develop positively for all, in a healthy, sustainable and thoughtful way.
