Leicestershire’s Green Plaque Awards scheme – nominations opening soon
In December of last year, Leicestershire County Council introduced a Green Plaque Awards scheme to recognise and celebrate people and places that have made an important and enduring contribution to the county.
The first six awards voted for by the public included a social reformer, a comedian, a teacher, a Dambuster pilot, a Brigadier-General and a world-famous bellfoundry.
The next round of nominations is launching soon…
On 10 December 2014, we will launch the next round of nominations. As custodians of heritage, we would like you to tell us which people, buildings and sites in Leicestershire you think deserve recognition.
Nominations can cover such themes as: war heroes, local heroes and famous people, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, places with cultural and heritage connections as well as buildings of historic or architectural importance.
More details are available from the Leicestershire County Council Green Plaque Awards scheme webpage and a nomination form will be available online from the 10 December up until the closing date of Friday 23 January 2015. People commemorated in Green Plaques must have been deceased for at least 20 years. Only six Green Plaques will be awarded each year.
