The Leamington Society is asking for nominations for its biennial awards - which will be presented this summer.

The Society has been has been helping to find and honour examples of good conservation and improvement projects or fine examples of contemporary architecture, however small or large, for more than 35 years.

The time has now come to invite nominations for the 2016 Leamington Society Awards.

These awards, given every other year, set an example for good design.

For instance, elegant new railings or a well restored house will encourage others around to the do the same; improving the streets, keeping Leamington looking good - and making it an even better place to live.

Good modern architecture is encouraged, particularly if the new complements the old.

The Award certificates are often framed and hung with pride by the winners and thereby encourage others to follow their example.

Anyone can nominate their favourite new or improved scheme from a wide range of possibilities.

The 2014 winners included houses, retail, flats, the station and a restaurant.

Among them were Station House student accommodation and Morrisons supermarket.

Gardens, sculpture and wild life reserves have also won awards.

There is a special award, the ‘Bill Gibbons Trophy’, for the best house - either by restoration or new build - by an owner-occupier.

Entry forms are available in the Visitors Information Centre in the Pump Rooms, the Town Hall Reception Area and the Council Offices Reception Area in Riverside House.

Alternatively, the forms can be downloaded from the Awards page of the Leamington Society website www.LeamingtonSociety.org.uk
