Heritage call

• Mrs Ivy Woods at her family home in Green Street, Joondanna, circa 1960. Winning entry from the previous Stirling history and heritage awards.

NOMINATIONS are open for next year’s City of Stirling history and heritage awards.

Council are calling on locals to submit evocative photos of Stirling pre-1990, and to nominate people or groups who have contributed to the education and preservation of the suburb’s heritage.

This time the biennial awards have been split into two categories, with “history” focusing on photographs from yesteryear, and “heritage” focusing on the conservation of landmarks like houses, streets and parks.

“The awards are an excellent way of raising public awareness of the history and heritage of the city and encouraging people to actively engage with it,” says Perth historian Richard Offen.

The awards ceremony will be on May 27 next year, with an exhibition of entries in early June.

Nominations close on February 14.
