FRIENDS of Horfield Common's chair, Sam Thomson, has picked up the Green Voluntary Leader of the Year Award at a recent ceremony, which celebrates those who give up the time to protect and enhance Bristol's environment, whilst inspiring others.
Bristol's third annual Green Volunteer Awards was held at Armada House and was hosted by Bristol Natural History Consortium and Bristol City Council.
Sam was awarded for motivating local people to take pride in the Horfield Common area, and demonstrating how people can respond to a need, which underlines the ethos of Green Capital.
Mayor George Ferguson said: “Our green volunteers ensure that Bristol flourishes as the UK’s centre of environmental creativity.
"Bristol’s reputation for sustainable innovation, that has resulted in us being awarded European Green Capital 2015, is founded on their hard work and dedication.
He added: "I am proud to give them my thanks on behalf of the whole city. It’s a better place because of them."
