Last chance reminder for the 2015 Flora Murray Award!

Locally based History and Archaeology Societies, Individuals and Local Groups are invited to submit their projects to the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology to be considered for the 2015 Flora Murray Award. Entries must be submitted by the end of February.

Flora Murray OBE (1913-2009), was a highly respected and much loved figure throughout the County and served the Society for 74 years. She worked for the Rural Community Council as the Local History Society was launched and administered various organisations, later becoming Chairman of the Society.

The annual Flora Murray Award consists of a £200 cheque and a framed certificate. Winners of the award will also receive free copies of the Society’s Journal and Magazine for 12 months. An additional award known as the SLHA Award for Excellence is granted at the Society’s discretion.

Suggestions for projects suitable for entry are published books, exhibitions, lectures, educational facilities and village trails but all projects which focus on aspects of the History and Archaeology of Lincolnshire are most welcome. Full details of successful projects from previous years and information about the assessment criteria can be seen on the Society website.

The closing date for the 2015 Flora Murray Award is the 29th February 2016.
