Gail Jackson, a trustee with Sustainable St Albans, said: "It is a real honour to accept this award on behalf of the many volunteers who have worked over the past 10 years to bring climate change and environmental issues to the fore in St Albans district.

"The Hertfordshire Sustainability Forum does an excellent job in bringing together those council professionals at the forefront of climate issues as well as climate concerned groups across the district."

The ceremony took place at the county's first ever Climate Change Conference, and the award was presented by Alison Crompton, regional director of sustainability, buildings and places at AECOM.
