Transport Trust awards open for nominations

logo-transport-trust The Transport Trust is inviting nominations for awards to help individuals and groups who are working hard to preserve items of importance to the Nation's transport heritage. Awards are made to transport restoration projects which underway but not completed and would benefit from financial assistance. Nominations for the awards can be made at any time and a panel will select winners. Nominations will be assessed on the basis of 'rarity, technical historic or social significance, quality of workmanship, proportion of work being carried out by applicant, originality of design and materials'. In addition to the Restoration Awards, nominations are also invited for Preservationist of the Year, Young Preservationist of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement. Further details are available on the Transport Trust's website here.
