|2014 Green Footprints award winners|
redevelopment of their Thringstone store on the site of the old Rose & Crown.
The awards, now in their sixth year, are organised by North West Leicestershire District Council and seek to recognise and reward local businesses, community groups, schools and young people for their commitment to making our district a cleaner, greener place to live.
The Co-op picked up their award in the 'Sustainable Urban Design' category with judges particularly commending the supermarket chain on how the store blends into its surroundings.
James Barker from Central England Co-operative, said “We’re looking to make all our new stores as low carbon footprint as possible and fit in with our local communities. We’ve really listened to the communities we’re building in to make sure that we fit in with what they need and do what we can to provide them with the services they require within their village.”
Other winners this year include Castle Donington Detachment Army Cadet Force, Coleorton and New Lount Volunteers and Snarestone Primary School.
