Civic Plaques

There are already 18 of these distinctive green signs bearing the town council coat of arms which can be seen on buildings throughout Horwich as part of a civic trail which has created a permanent and appropriate acknowledgement of the town’s rich history. Their purpose is to acknowledge that the building has either an historic significance or an association with a prominent Horwich resident. The Town Council will install a new plaque which will be chosen from a list of sites nominated by the public.

Application forms available by emailing townclerk@horwich.gov.uk, phone 01204 691090 or collect from Horwich Community Centre. Closing date for nominations is 4 November 2022.

Please note that plaques need to be fixed to an existing building and must be clearly seen from the road.
