Developments enhance town

Alnwick Civic Society invites local people to suggest recent development projects in Alnwick which merit an award.

Anyone who considers that a recent development looks particularly good and enhances the town can let us know by the end of July 2013 and we will consider it for a 2013 Alnwick Civic Society Award.

The award criteria are that the project has been completed within the last 12 months, makes a positive contribution to the townscape and demonstrates good design and workmanship.

The size of the development does not matter.

Projects which gained an award in 2012 included the new Gentoo apartments at Ropery Court and Towergate, a replacement doorway at the Convent of Mercy, shop restoration works at Bari Tea, repairs to Alnwick Methodist Church, the new shopfront at Costa Coffee and the restoration of the traditional pub name at the Black Swan PH.

Nominations can be made by email to alncivsoc@hot or by post to Susan Smith, honorary secretary, Alnwick Civic Society, 10 Percy Terrace, Alnwick, Northumberland, NE66 1AF.
