Ilkley Civic Society announced its annual Design & Conservation Awards winners in March but has been unable to hold a formal presentation of certificates to all the winners.
In place of this we presented the main winner with an Award certificate for the Design & Conservation of All Saints Church new link building and reordering of the church. The presentation took place outside the link building with Helen Kidman chair of Ilkley Civic Society presenting to Mike Coe, Vicar of All Saints, and Derek Twine the project manager in a socially distanced way.
Helen Kidman commented: “that this was the first time the society had an Award winner that combined major elements of both design of a contemporary building and conservation of a historic building and of its potential to be of great benefit to the local community for years to come.”
Revd. Mike Coe added: “We are thrilled to be given this award in recognition of the redevelopment work at the church. The design and details of the reordered church and the new link building have greatly enhanced our mission and ministry, and we hope that they will be a great blessing and asset to the local community for many years to come.”
The architects for the detailed design of the project where local company Halliday Clark and construction was by Dobson Construction another local company.
