Entries are invited for The Transport Trust Restoration Awards. A number of cash awards, normally up to a maximum of £5,000 each, are made annually for high quality transport restoration projects which are well advanced, but which would be helped towards earlier completion by a modest cash injection.
The closing date for Restoration Award entries is 30th June next and inspection of projects will take place before the end of August, with the declaration of winners made during October. Award criteria and entry forms are available from The Transport Trust, 202 Lambeth Road, London SE1 7JW – email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0207 928 6464.
Nominations are also invited for the Trust's Preservationist Of The Year Award, Lifetime Achievement Awards and The Young Preservationist Of The Year Award (which carries with it a cash sum of £500 for the winner). These three Awards enable the Trust to acknowledge and publicise a wide range of endeavours in the cause of transport preservation - from management or administration to hands-on restoration work.
Entries are invited from individuals or organisations and should reach the Transport Trust office not later than 1st June next. Presentation to winners will take place in the summer on a date and at a Greater London venue to be announced.
