Marsh Civic Volunteer Award

This award is run in partnership with Civic Voice; it recognises the outstanding contribution made by an individual volunteer to the Civic movement.

Civic Voice is the national charity for the civic movement which started in England during the 1840s. They make places more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive. They promote civic pride.

The 2013 winner is Kevin Trickett

Kevin has been President of Wakefield Civic Society since March 2002 and has worked since then to create a dynamic and proactive Society.
Kevin has managed to build and maintain a high profile for the Society, so that the Local Authority and Developers consult them during the early stages of planning projects. He has also initiated publications on blue plaques and public sculpture, instituted guided walks of Wakefield and has taken an active role in promoting the annual Heritage Open Days events.

Understanding the need for good communication with other civic societies, Kevin is also Chair of the Yorkshire and Humber Association of Civic Societies and has helped set up new societies in Bradford, Sheffield and Barnsley. He organises regional meetings to bring local members together.

Kevin is a true part of the Civic Movement and an ideal recipient of this Award.
