The annual Green Awards are part of Stafford Borough Council’s commitment to the environment and highlight buildings which are examples of good environmental practice. The awards recognise the work undertaken by local organisations in creating a more sustainable and healthy community.

The competition was open to all organisations operating in the borough, and played a key role in the Council’s agenda on issues surrounding carbon reduction and sustainable development.

The Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Millichap, presented certificates to the winners at a ceremony in Stafford Gatehouse Theatre last week.

Cabinet member for environment and health, Councillor Stan Highfield, said: "The standard of entry was extremely high and every business or organisation that entered should be very proud with what they are doing to help create a sustainable community."

Rising Brook Watch Manager, Chris Hughes said: "We are delighted to have received this commendation for Rising Brook Community Fire Station. The station was designed with efficiencies in mind and it is wonderful to know our building is an example of good environmental practice."
