Every year the Civic Society presents an award for the building or development which has made a positive contribution to the town in the previous year. Due to Covid we were unable to make the presentation to the developer of Loveday Mews at out AGM in March and a second attempt was thwarted in September. So, it was Friday 18th December that we finally managed to organise it!
The Photograph shows John Tiffney, Chair of the Civic Society, presenting the award to Helen Parker-Joel of Perry Bishop and David (one of the new homeowners).
Unfortunately, neither the developers, Hermitage Homes nor the architect, Thinking Buildings Ltd, were able to attend.
The site was formerly Hares Antiques. During the archaeological investigations pottery from the Roman period was unearthed.
The new houses are built of Cotswold stone with slate roofs, and the construction was a test of everyone’s skills due to the narrow and congested site just off Gosditch Street in the town centre!
