Nominations sought for blue plaque scheme in Derbyshire
Derbyshire County Council is asking members of the public to suggest well-known local people to be honoured in the 2012 blue plaque awards.
The scheme, which started in 2009, celebrates the achievements of people from the county's past.
Last year's winners included Henry Royce, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, and Sir Joseph Whitworth, who standardised the industrial screw.
Anyone nominated must have died at least 20 years ago.
Other past winners include Dad's Army star Arthur Lowe, who has a plaque in Hayfield, and William Barron of Borrowash - a 19th Century gardener who designed the gardens at Elvaston Castle.
County council leader Andrew Lewer said: "There is a wealth of people and places in Derbyshire that deserve recognition and I am looking forward to seeing what people are suggesting this year.
"We have already honoured some of Derbyshire's great and good but I know there are plenty of others out there who deserve a plaque."
The closing date for nominations is 24 July.
