working landscape and can only survive thanks to thousands of dedicated people joining together as
a “Team New Forest”. We’re fortunate to have many exceptional people who go above and beyond
to sustain our landscape and unique way of life. The New Forest awards reflect these outstanding
contributions to the environment, rural economy and our communities.”
