2011 sees the return of the annual Jurassic Coast Award, following its launch in 2010. In 2010 Earth Science Manager Richard Edmonds and two volunteers from Beer Village Heritage, Norah Jaggars and Pat Farrell were worthy recipients. This year the award will recognise businesses who have made a special contribution to the Jurassic Coast.

The Jurassic Coast Award is for businesses that promote the values of the Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site and have demonstrated this through their operations. The business could for example be tourism based, significantly enriching the visitor experience of the Jurassic Coast; it could be a business whose product encapsulates an aspect of the Jurassic Coast and further inspires customers’ exploration, understanding and awareness of it; or perhaps one that provides a local service, keeping the values of the Jurassic Coast in the community for both residents and visitors alike.

The awards have been individually sculptured by the lettering artist and sculptor Gary Breeze with sponsorship from the Fine Family Foundation.

So whether you’re a sole trader or a national business operating on the Jurassic Coast if you’ve help promote the values of the Jurassic Coast then complete your entry now!, go to for more information.
