Shown here are some of the projects which have done most to improve the look of Grantham in the last year or so.
The schemes include work carried out at the King’s School, at Market Place and to several town centre shop fronts.
Now Journal readers are being urged to come up with their own nominations for other outstanding examples as part of an environmental awards scheme.
Grantham Civic Society is to make a total of three Townscape awards for 2014 and already has nominations for three projects:
* Renewal of the old King’s School roof and garden.
* Refurbishment of Market Place and Westgate
* Clearing work at the Earlsfield section of Grantham canal.
But the society reckons there are other improvements worthy of recognition.
Now it wants nominations for other projects from members of the public.
A Civic Society spokesman said: “Readers’ nominations are invited for any projects they consider show good design and which perhaps make you stop, look and admire.
“It can be a shop front, an attractive house, maybe with a special effort in the front garden, or even a well loved building that deserves to be singled out for praise.”
Nominations should be received by the Journal or can be emailed to media@grantham civicsociety.co.uk by June 9.
The winners will be chosen and the presentations made on National Civic Day at the Mayor’s Parlour in Grantham on Saturday, June 21.
