The Civic Trust - creating better places for people

The Heritage Protection Bill - Update
As members will know, this long-awaited Bill, into which we and others have put so much work, was among eight dropped from the Queen's Speech in November, to widespread dismay. However, it appears that much of its provisions can be implemented without primary legislation.

Advance Notice of Free Training for Civic Societies!
The 2009 Civic Society Training programme, jointly funded by English Heritage is designed to demonstrate how Civic Societies can widen community involvement in the historic built environment by developing projects that will make it more relevant and attractive to young people and BME community members. We will be offering a number of training events where you will:

� Learn from examples of innovative best practice up and down the country
� Consider the challenges and opportunities being faced by us all within our built environment
To book onto these events please click here or for further information please call 0151 231 6900 or email helpdesk@civictrust.org.uk
Vote for your favourite Civic Trust Award Winner

Launched in 1959, the Civic Trust Awards is one of the oldest built environment award schemes in Europe. From cafes and churches to housing and hospitals, the Civic Trust has rewarded over 5,500 buildings which have made a difference to local people and their communities by providing the design and facilities which have made better places for people.

In 2009, the Civic Trust Awards is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and to commemorate this, we would like to recognise and reward a scheme that is considered to be the most successful Civic Trust Award winner over the past 50 years, voted for by you.

Businesses sign up to pilot loyalty card scheme trials

A pioneering loyalty card scheme in West Cornwall has proved an astonishing success.

Mark Barnes, of the Civic Trust, said that he was delighted so many people and business were already involved in the scheme. The purpose of the programme is to provide consumers, local businesses, charities and non profit organisations access to information and technology enabling them to shop locally and share locally. The programme promotes shopping at participating businesses while rewarding customers and donating to their favourite causes
