The National Memorial Arboretum is the proud recipient of, or has been involved in, a number of awards. These provide something of an insight into the many areas in which we’ve sought and achieved excellence on the journey towards becoming recognised nationally as the UK's year-round centre of Remembrance.

The Arboretum were awarded a Highly Commended award in the Large Visitor Attraction category at the 2014 Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Awards.  

Queen's Award for Voluntary Service 2010

The National Memorial Arboretum's volunteers are members of one of the volunteering bodies to win HM The Queen’s prestigious Award for Voluntary Service – equivalent to an MBE. The 120 Volunteers give outstanding service and support to the Arboretum and its visitors, contributing a total of more than 28,000 hours in 2010.

European Best Practice Award 2010
The European Aggregates Association recognised Lafarge's role in the creation of the National Memorial Arboretum site on a former sand and gravel quarry, helping it to become an area of beauty, a haven for wildlife and a place of great historic importance within beautiful wooded parkland. Lafarge has been instrumental in the creation and sustained development of the Arboretum, providing expertise and materials, involvement as a Trustee and active involvement in our management, landscaping and communications committees.

Cooper Heyman Cup 2009
The Cooper-Heyman Cup is the premier national restoration award for projects of an exceptional standard and reflects the Arboretum’s ‘massive environmental, social and economic benefits'. 

Lafarge and the National Memorial Arboretum scooped the top national award for land restoration. Presented by the Mineral Products Association (MPA) in London, the accolade celebrates the environmental, social and economic benefits resulting from the development of the Arboretum on the site of one of Lafarge's former sand and gravel quarries.
