Ilkley Civic Society look back at past awards

1986 Ilkley Civic Awards

Like most organisations, the Ilkley Civic Society have had to adapt to the current situation, and to keep everyone involved safe for its annual Design & Conservation Awards have carry forward completed projects to the 2022 competition.

A spokesperson for Ilkley Civic Society said: “It would have been exceedingly difficult to arrange visits to properties and keep everyone involved safe.

“Our March meeting this year therefore took a different format, we decided to look back at Awards we had given in the past and a Zoom presentation took place on Thursday 25th March which covered all our more recent awards held on powerpoint presentations and some photos from the archives.

“A section of the presentation covered the production and award of plaques produced in 1987 and to be found in various locations around the town. Designed by local artist Bert Roberts with an original made in plasticine, a mould made then cast with resin to which aluminium powder is added to make it look like aluminium.”
