Lost Words Award.

In 2018 the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust approached members for donations to enable them to give a copy of Lost Words to every school in Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. The book by author Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris was designed to reacquaint children with words associated with the natural world which were falling out of use. Words such as acorn, fern, weasel or wren. Some children today are growing up with very little contact with nature and so are not acquiring the language to speak about it. The money was raised, and members were then asked to help deliver the books to schools in their areas. This was a delightful task and the books were well received. The artist Jackie Morris has recently been awarded the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal for her illustrations. They reflect her imaginative and sympathetic response to the poetry in the spells woven in words by Robert Macfarlane. It is a well-deserved honour.                               Dianne Roberts
