Green Apple Environment Award for the Willow Brook Centre

Green Apple Environment Award 2013.

The Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.

It competed against more than 500 other nominations and Centre Manager Scott Lahive and Joy Souch, Centre Administrator, were presented with the award at a glittering ceremony in the House of Commons on Monday 11th November.

Mr Lahive said:

“We are already proud to have won the national Shopping Centre Sceptre Award for Waste Management and the highly regarded Silver Zero Waste Award. It’s a fantastic achievement to add a Green Apple Award to the list.”

“All three awards are testament to the great team we have at the centre, and their dedication to the environment.”

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.

The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice.

Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.

  1. The article does not explain why the Willow Brooks Centre has received this award. If it is for saving energy, I suspect this is because there is hardly any heating in the Centre and the owners seem to have most of the lights in the main hall switched off. This may be good for the environment, but leaves customers shivering and walking around in a dark gloomy environment. I, for one buy what I need to at Tesco and leave as soon as I can before freezing to death. Have the shops and traders not noticed the cold uninviting shopping experience?
