Have your say

There’s never been a better time to go green.

And the Lancashire Green Awards celebrate the best of your efforts across the county.

These prestigious awards recognise and celebrate the environmental achievement of individuals and groups of people from across the county however big or small the impact is.

Today we are featuring the Best Kept Allotment award, sponsored by TEG.

Allotments are so popular with everyone, bringing communities together young and old, male and female.

This award is open to anyone who owns an allotment anywhere in Lancashire that can demonstrate a variety and quality of crop, the control of weeds and rubbish and the use of compost and the general appearance and creativity of the plot.

So whatever you have achieved, no matter how small, let us know and enter this award – you never know – you could be the winner!

Last year’s winners Jo and Mo Kholoud have enjoyed an open day since winning, encouraging young and old to ‘grown your own’.

TEG is a specialist green technology company offering tailored organic waste solutions by developing and operating composting and energy plants.

TEG’s head office is in Buckshaw Village, Chorley, and the company builds in-vessel composting (IVC) and anaerobic digestion (AD) plants throughout the UK.

The firm is at the forefront in supporting local authorities in achieving their targets to reduce waste sent to landfill, helping contain CO2 emissions and reducing carbon footprint for waste management.

It is particularly pleased to be providing ongoing support to councils here in Lancashire, offering a completely safe and natural solution for organic waste which provides an end product which positively enriches the environment.

TEG also offers a marketing and distribution service for the natural organic compost and digestate produced, to be used in agriculture. TEG’s compost is also suitable for horticulture, remediation and landscaping.
