Since then she’s opened Naked Quench, a zero-waste coffee shop in adjoining premises. Kathy said : “To win sustainability champion for the second year running is really special. I’d like to thank everyone who has stepped in to help us – particularly during lockdown, and to the New Forest Marque members who work with us to support the community.” Founded in 2019, the Young Environmental Champion award celebrates the achievements of young people under 25 years old. is year, it went to 12-year-old Daisy Scott from Keyhaven whose aim is to become a fully-trained and quali ed bird ringer. Since starting last year, Daisy has ringed more than 350 birds – including warblers, sparrowhawks and nightjars. Daisy was delighted to be chosen: “Thank you so much for this award. I was surprised to be nominated by the Milford Conservation Volunteers, let alone win. I’d like to thank Graham Giddens, who has 30 years of ringing experience, for all his help and guidance.” New Forest National Park Authority Chief Executive Alison Barnes said: “These fantastic winners are essential in building the strong team needed to keep the New Forest special. Never has there been a more important time to recognise them; they give us hope for the future.” M i c h a e l V a l e n z i a , R e g i o n a l Director of CLA South East which r e p r e s e n t s f a r m e r s , l a n d o w n e r s and rural b u s i n e s s e s across the New Forest, H a m p s h i r e and beyond, said: “A hearty congratulations to all of our very deserving winners.
