The Society presents Awards for improvements in the physical environment (‘the street scene’) of Leamington Spa. The Awards are given for a wide variety of work such as
- restoration of a significant period building,
- a new building or structure,
- improvement to a building,
- a new or restored interior visible to the public,
- a restored or new shop front,
- a landscape, garden, park or planting,
- a sculpture or work of art,
- any other improvement.
In addition the Bill Gibbons trophy is presented for the most impressive nominated private improvement to the street scene.
A panel of judges, led by a distinguished architect from outside Leamington Spa, assesses all nominations. The winners receive certificates from Leamington’s mayor at a public ceremony.
The Leamington Society Award scheme normally takes place biennially. This cycle was interrupted by the Covid pandemic and the 2020 Awards scheme was postponed to autumn 2021. The next Awards scheme is scheduled for summer 2024.
