The Leicestershire County Council Green Plaques are awarded to people and places in and around the county, nominated and voted for by the public.
You can nominate anyone from war heroes, local heroes, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, places with cultural or heritage connections, as well as buildings of historic or architectural importance.
The nominees will be considered by a panel, who then narrow down to a shortlist of twelve. The public then vote for their favourites and the six with the most votes will be honoured at ‘plaque unveiling’ events throughout the year.
Market Harborough Historical Society successfully nominated Sir William Bragg and his son, William Lawrence Bragg for the Nobel-prize winning discovery of crystallography. The plaque for Bragg and Bragg was installed on Catherwood House, The Square, Market Harborough on June 16th 2016.
