Green Award is Twice as Nice Second Time Round

The CCORRN Community RePaint team were delighted to be awarded The Fenland Enterprise Business Awards - Green Award for a second year running.


The Green Award - sponsored by Local Generation is designed to recognise significant achievements in protecting and improving the environment or providing a major contribution to local communities without the expectation of direct commercial benefit.<p>

The judges said: “While having already established itself as a leading organisation in its field, this enterprise has made great strides in the last year by adopting a more business focussed approach, driving increased volume throughout and thus strengthening the sustainability of this very important service to the community and environment."

CCORRN is a partnership between the community, public and private sector that was started in early 2003. Financial support was awarded to Cambridgeshire County Council for its establishment, from DEFRA's Recycling Challenge Fund and Enventure.

CCORRN's goal when incepted was to successfully increase the quantity of community reuse and recycling projects in the County. CCORRN is now a Company Limited by Guarantee with its Directors made up of volunteers from all the sectors involved. One full time staff member is employed as the 'Community Recycling Network Organiser' to carry out the work programme set by the Management Committee.

In the second year 2004, the network continued to build upon the first year's success. This included providing 'Seedcorn' funding for project start ups as well as holding events, workshops and visits to allow the dissemination of knowledge and best practice. By assisting groups in defining/developing and bid writing they were able to secure additional funding to develop and expand their operations.
