    The Civic Trust was delighted to award the Leslie Johnson Craftsmanship Award for 2016 to Mark Pickersgill for the pleasure he has given with his garden on the wall, close to the NatWest Bank on Cheapside.
    A certificate of commendation was awarded to Ravi Voruganti, Thomas Bell Pharmacy on Lake Road for the display of apothecary’s equipment in the refurbished window.
