THE latest person to be in the running for a Trinity Mirror Your Champions award is the vice president of Chester Civic Trust, Stephen Langtree.
Stephen, currently on holiday in France, has no idea that he has been nominated so it will come as a nice surprise for him on his return.
He was nominated by a member of the Chester Civic Trust, who wishes to remain anonymous.
The person said: “He is a real human dynamo with an incredible eye for detail and is at the heart of most of Chester Civic Trust's activities.
“He comes up with dozens of ideas for leaflets, publications, activities, projects and partnerships and inspires other people to help him see them through.
“Without Stephen, Chester Civic Trust would not have achieved half of what it has.”
Stephen has been a major driving force behind Chester Civic Trust for the past 20 years or more.
As well as being the current vice president of the Trust, he is also chairman of the jubilee committee and acting chairman of the publicity committee.
He also represents the Trust on the Taylor’s Boatyard Trust, Chester Historic Buildings Preservation Trust and Arts for Arts Sake, as well as giving lectures to civic trust members and other organisations.
He is also a member of the North West Association of Civic Trusts and represents it on the North West Historic Environment Forum.
Over the years he has also been honorary secretary and chairman, plus chairman of the new works committee, and was a key figure in the publication of the book 2,000 Years of Building, to celebrate Chester in the millennium.
