Jewson Building Better Communities competition opens
February 27, 2015
The Jewson Building Better Communities vote-based competition is aimed at transforming spaces and places in need of a little love and attention across the UK. The awards are meant to be used to support building projects of all shapes and sizes, no matter how innovative or ambitious.
The competition is open to any local group in the UK that has a 'big idea' that will benefit its community.
Nominations for innovative and ambitious projects which make use of sustainable products and practices are particularly welcome.
Regional winners will get support of £1,000 and £5,000. One project will win the main £50,000 prize.
The awards are to be used to help pay for the cost of building materials and labour and can be spent on anything from a new roof for the local village hall, a sensory garden, a community festival or a coat of paint for a neglected public facility.
Visit the website for more information on how to apply.
The deadline for entries is 12 April 2015.
