A PROJECT to protect and monitor dormice in an area of North Somerset woodland has won a national award.

The Goblin Combe Environment Centre, based in Cleeve, won a bronze Green Apple award in the ecology and biodiversity category for its methods of monitoring the protected dormice species, at the Green Organisation’s awards ceremony in London.

Spokesman Jamie Edmonds said: “The Green Apple trophy takes pride of place in the environment centre.

“We are now working with Avon 
Wildlife Trust to combine woodland management techniques and ultimately improve the woodland further for dormice.”
