FINE EXAMPLES of architecture and conservation in Leamington can now be nominated for an award.

The Leamington Society has been finding and honouring high-quality modern architecture and good conservation practice for more than three decades.

Nominations must be in by April 22 and have to be for constructions built or improved since 2010.

When the awards were last held, two years ago, winners included the new-look North Leamington School, a restored Victorian house in Leam Terrace and the conversion of the Abbacourt Hotel in Kenilworth Road.

A special award, the Bill Gibbons trophy, is also given for the best restoration or new build of a house. It is in honour of the late town historian.

Archie Pitts from the Leamington Society said: “These awards set an example for good design. Elegant new railings are copied by the neighbours. A well restored house in a shabby street encourages other home-owners.”

A panel from the Leamington Society, Warwick District Council and an independent architect will select winners, with awards presented at a ceremony on July 12 and an exhibition of all entries then held at Leamington library.

Entry forms are available by visiting www.LeamingtonSociety.org.uk or at the Pump Rooms and Leamington Town Hall.
