New Forest conservation charity, the New Forest Trust is seeking nominations for its Diamond Jubilee Award.

First presented by Her Majesty the Queen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the award is given annually at the New Forest Show at the end of July.

The award is made to someone who has given freely of their own time and made a significant contribution towards maintaining or improving the environment and rural economy of the New Forest. Or to someone who has contributed to the conservation or cultural heritage of the New Forest, or brought about a greater awareness of issues that have a direct bearing on the well-being of the forest.

The winner is chosen by a panel nominated by the principal voluntary New Forest organisations – the New Forest Association, the New Forest Commoners Defence Association, the New Forest Pony & Cattle Breeding Society and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

Chairman of the Trust, William Ziegler said, “The New Forest is indebted to many who go the extra mile to help conserve and improve it. Often their work goes largely unrecognized and this award is for those people. So, we are asking the public to come forward and nominate anybody they know who fits that description”

Nominations for the award can be made direct on the Trusts website www.newforesttrust.org.uk/new-forest-award
