'British Urban Regeneration Association' dinner

Staircase House received yet another award at the prestigious 'British Urban Regeneration Association' dinner.

The Trust was recognised for the early efforts to save the building and Kevin Dranfield attended the dinner on our behalf.

The award was accepted by Councillor Sue Derbyshire who gave a short speech which acknowledged the Trust's role in rescuing Staircase House.

With the party were Steve Burns and Eddie Wilshaw who are both instrumental in the regeneration of the Market Place and Hillgate areas.
