This years Environmental Quality Mark winners

Green businesses in the Peak District picked up quality awards for their work to safeguard the area’s environment and heritage.

Fourteen businesses received the Environmental Quality Mark (EQM) during a presentation event at the historic Haddon Hall.

The awards bring the total number of eco-friendly businesses in the Peak District to 98, all working hard to reduce their environmental impact and conserve the landscape of the National Park.

New winners included Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages, near Bakewell, Elton Old Hall, April Cottage, Youlgrave, Haddon Hall Visitor Attraction, Parsley Hay Refreshments, Hartington, Sally Mosley Guided Walks, Over Haddon, Andrew Lawton Furniture, Grindleford and Wood Turning, at Christmas Cottage, Youlgrave.

Sponsors for the presentation evening were Bagshaws chartered surveyors, of Bakewell, Waitrose, of Buxton, Peak Press, of Chapel-en-le-Frith, and JW Mettrick and Son, butchers, with shops in Glossop and Hadfield, hold the Environmental Quality Mark as well as all their lamb suppliers.

I’m sorry but I just cannot get excited about these awards that are given for what should be sensible and good housekeeping.
