The 2008 Paviors’ Award for excellence in paving has been awarded to Fylde Borough
Council for the very imaginative reconstruction of St Annes Square in Lytham St Annes. The
scheme was designed in-house by the Borough Regeneration Team and constructed by a
number of local contractors.
The number of entries was less than in past years, but the standard of the submissions was
high. This presented a difficult choice for the judges. The winning scheme provides an
attractive area for the people of St Annes to walk and sit, and demonstrates innovative use of
the Square for street art. The construction work has been carried out to a high standard using
good quality materials. The scheme is a positive contribution to the environment of St Annes,
and is enjoyed by both residents and holiday makers.
The Master, Christopher Laing, and the Paviors’ judge, Mike Cottell, travelled to St Annes on
the 30th July 2008 to make the award of certificates and a commemorative plaque to the
client, Fylde Borough Council, the Borough Regeneration Team and the main contractor,
Marland Builders and Contractors. The representatives in the group photograph (from left to
