OWNERS of an historic property in Bridgwater are to be honoured with a conservation award.

Bridgwater & District Civic Society will present an Environmental Enhancement Award to Owen and Gareth Jones, in recognition of conservation and enhancement work on the façade of 2 Castle Street, where conservation of stonework and restoration of brick surfaces has been carried out.

Since 1972, when the Bridgwater & District Civic Society was founded, such awards have been made regularly, in recognition of work done by owners to houses or business premises in and around Bridgwater.
