City Heritage Society Award

One of the many valuable contributions made by the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers to the historical and architecturally interesting City of London is the City Heritage Award. As one walks around the City one can see bronze plaques with a year and the words in capitals “CITY HERITAGE AWARD”. On closer examination, around the perimeter are the words, in smaller capitals “PRESENTED BY THE CITY HERITAGE SOCIETY AND THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF PAINTER-STAINERS.”

In 1977 Liveryman Sir Allan Davis (who became Lord Mayor in 1985), persuaded the Company to become involved with the fledgling City Heritage Society. A City Heritage Award was established to encourage a positive and sustainable approach to the preservation and refurbishment of the historical buildings in the City and this annual award was inaugurated at Painters’ Hall on 4 April 1978.
