Town improvement projects deserving of recognition are being sought by Hartlepool Civic Society.

The society is appealing for nominations of projects that have enhanced the town over the last year for its 2015 Annual Awards.

The awards scheme is an opportunity for the society to showcase projects that have been completed by individuals, organisations or companies which have enhanced the town and the borough in general.

There are a number of categories including conservation, new buildings, refurbishment, environmental improvement, and tourist potential.

Once the nominations are in, the civic society’s Executive Committee tour each one before putting their heads together and deciding the winners.

They will be presented with certificates and trophies at the annual awards night, which this year takes place on Monday, October 19.

Previous winners have included the The Duke – the new name for the Duke of Cleveland’s summer home on the Headland – the new Headland Community Fire Station and wild flowers planted by the roadsides by Hartlepool Borough Council.

Other projects praised in last year’s awards were residents of 140 Colwyn Road, Hartlepool, who had renovated their railings, the refurbished Hartlepool Cricket Club pavilion and The Sidings housing development in Mainsforth Terrace.

Civic society secretary Val Lister has asked that all nominations are submitted no later than Wednesday, September 16.
