Two conservation-related projects feature in the Happy List 2013!

Be inspired! Two conservation-related projects feature in the Independent's Happy List 2013!

This is the Independent's sixth annual Happy List, naming "100 outstanding people whose volunteering, caring, fundraising, mentoring, charity founding or selflessness makes Britain a more contented, supportive, better-adjusted and happier place".

You can see the list here but look out for:

Acorn Bank Watermill Volunteers - Heritage lovers:
"Richard Harland, Ray Gill and Bob Price form the trio who painstakingly restored and now maintain an ancient mill at Temple Sowerby, Cumbria. For five years they have helped to rebuild the wooden structure, and the mill is now able to grind flour for the first time in over 70 years."

Denise Bernard - Restorer:
"Denise’s determination to restore The Florence Institute in Toxteth, Liverpool, which closed in the 1980s, is the reason it stands tall today. Denise and her community, helped by lottery funding, have transformed “the Florrie” into a youth and social club that is used by 250 children weekly."
