Did you know that Godshill has a Civic Trust Award?
The Civic Trust was founded in 1957 by Duncan Sandys, a British politician, and the former son-in-law of Sir Winston Churchill. It campaigned to make better places for people to live. It ran until 2009 before going into administration due to a shortage of funding.
Civic Trust Awards was founded in 1959 and is still going strong today. It’s one of the oldest built environment award schemes in Europe.
This plaque is on a wall in Godshill. Have you spotted it? Do you know anyone who might throw some light on who actually won this award in Godshill in the very first year of the award scheme?
