2019 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards

2019 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards

The 2019 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards were launched at the Award-winning Weald & Downland Living Museum on Thursday 7th February 2019.

The launch of the Awards is an annual event to announce the official call for Award entries, which is now considered the most prestigious architectural and conservation programme in East & West Sussex and Brighton & Hove.

Sussex Heritage Trust is a registered charity established in 1977 to preserve, improve and encourage the appreciation of the architectural and natural landscape of Sussex. A wide variety of projects have received awards over the years. In the Ecclesiastical category, a number of Church building projects in the Diocese were encouraged to enter and many of them won awards, including Littlehampton, Lancing and Hamsey nr Lewes.

There are nine categories of Awards. The winners receive a hand-crafted slate plaque to be attached to the building. The judging team usually comprise a Sussex Heritage Trust Trustee, a professional in the appropriate field and a ‘lay person’ to ensure a balanced view.

The Chairman, Dr John Godfrey, DL, said: “As a small charity we are very grateful to our sponsors, in particular Thesis and Toovey’s, who have helped us launch the prestigious 2019 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards. The Awards go from strength to strength with record number of entries and a sold-out Awards luncheon and ceremony in 2018. I now look forward to receiving entries to the 2019 Awards.”
