HTF Media Release - 17 June 2011
Long standing Historic Towns Forum Executive Committee Member Stephen Langtree has been awarded an MBE for his long standing service to The Chester Civic Trust. Everyone at the HTF would like to congratulate him on receiving this well deserved award.
On receiving his MBE Stephen said: “It came as a great shock, it’s a wonderful honour. I never expected it for one minute. Some colleagues in The Chester Civic Trust nominated me. It was our golden jubilee last year and they put the nomination in then. It is just wonderful.”
Last year Stephen produced a booklet, Conservation Area Awareness, funded by English Heritage and previously he co-edited 2000 Years of Building: Chester's Architectural Legacy.
Stephen has sacrificed a great deal of his spare time and is very dedicated to conserving the historic built environment. In 2001 Stephen helped set up the North West Association of Civic Trusts and Societies (NWACTS) where he was chairman for the first five years and represents the organisation on the NW Historic Environment Forum.
